The Rise and Fall of Little Voice starring X Factor's Diana Vickers at the Vaudeville from 8 Oct 2009

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright, opens at the Vaudeville Theatre 20 Oct 2009, following previews from 8 Oct 2009.

Directed by Terry Johnson, starring X Factor's Diana Vickers.

A black comedy-drama about painfully shy, diminutive Little Voice (LV), who lives alone in the north of England with her mother, Mari. Mari’s drunken, overbearing personality has driven LV into seclusion in her bedroom, where she listens to her late father’s records and has perfected faultless impersonations of the greatest divas, including Judy Garland and Dame Shirley Bassey. When Mari’s latest boyfriend, small-time working men’s club impresario Ray Say, overhears LV singing, he puts in place a tragic sequence of events as he pushes her towards stardom she doesn’t want and is literally terrified of.

Diana Vickers , born in Burnley, Lancashire, the sort of town where the play is set, has been singing since the age of 11. Her talent came to light when she entered the “X Factor” in 2008 and her journey saw her survive nine weeks of live shows. Diana is taking short break from recording her debut album to take the role in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. She recently signed a record deal to RCA records and her debut album is due for release early 2010.
