The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright
Winner of the 1992 Evening Standard Best Comedy Award and the 1993 Olivier Award for Best Comedy,"The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is a cracker, original, hilarious and hauntingly sad" (Daily Telegraph) "Like everything Cartwright writes, Little Voice is playful, magical and terrifying, a view of the world from an unexpected angle, perpetrated by an imagination that notices the dust in the grooves of old records and finds poetry in garish, swanky clothes or the glitterball of a rowdy northern club" (Sunday Times) "A northern showbiz fairytale, a backstreet Cinderella story, with a built-in kick" (Guardian)
