About
The play tells the story of a shy reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life out of control mother Mari. In this  heart-warming tale Little Voice, desperately missing her dead       father, spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of   famous divas such as Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy         Garland and Dusty Springfield. Her remarkable talent remains a secret until she is overheard by a local talent scout Ray Say. When her mother Mari starts dating Ray Say, Mari thinks he's her last chance for a better life. When Ray hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she's his ticket to the big time. Ray sets about creating the show of the century with Little Voice as his star. When the big night arrives, Ray is convinced that this is his last chance for fame and fortune. But has anyone asked Little Voice what she wants?
