Lesley Sharp and Marc Warren Join Cast of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice Revival logo
Lesley Sharp and Marc Warren have joined the cast of the revival of Jim Cartwright's Olivier Award-winning comedy The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, at the Vaudeville Theatre, beginning October 8. They join previously announced Diana Vickers, who will play the title role. Terry Johnson will direct.

The play concerns a painfully shy, diminutive woman named Little Voice who lives in the north of England with her overbearing mother, Mari, and who she listens to her late father's records and creates faultless impersonations of the world's greatest divas, including Judy Garland and Shirley Bassey. When Mari's latest boyfriend overhears Little Voice's singing, he puts in place a tragic sequence of events.

The cast also includes Rachel Lumbert and James Cartwright (son of the playwright). The production is designed by Lez Brotherston, with musical supervision by Nigel Lilley, lighting by Mark Henderson, and sound by Ian Dickinson.
