posted in: Event, Play Reading | 0

It has been a while since we’ve had a play reading at The Knut, so we’re delighted to announce that we’re having one on Sunday 21st October!

WHAT: ‘The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice’ by Jim Cartwright
WHEN: Sunday 21st Oct 2pm
WHERE: The Knut, Plen an Gwary, St Just

If you enjoy theatre or simply a great story we’re looking for people to take part in our impromptu readings. No experience needed and scripts are provided. Or just come along and listen.

This month we’re pleased to announce that this month’s play is The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright. You might remember the film starring Jane Horrocks, Michael Caine and Brenda Blethyn.

The play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother Mari.

Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield.

When Mari starts dating small-time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he’s her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she’s his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved. Not everyone is going to get what they want!

Refreshments will be available for a donation, we also ask participants and listeners to donate a minimum of £2 each towards the cost of the scripts.
