Read the Sardines magazine’s review of this show
Last performed at BLT 15 years ago, our May production is a revival of Jim Cartwright’s acclaimed dark comedy. It won both the 1992 Evening Standard Best Comedy Award and the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Comedy. In an age where it seems that everyone craves their 15 minutes of fame, Cartwright’s play looks at a more reluctant talent. Young LV – so-called because of her meek ‘Little Voice’ – takes comfort in the songs of Piaf, Streisand and Bassey and escapes her humdrum existence by losing herself in a more exotic world. But can she discover her own path and escape the clutches of those who just want to use her talent for their own ends?
In an exciting revival for BLT come and enjoy a night of music, humour and heart warming fun.
