Cast and Crew
What makes The Rise and Fall of Little Voice a timeless play is its cast and crew. Christina Bianco plays the role of Little Voice; Little’s mother, Mari, is played by Shobna Gulati, while Ian Kelsey plays the role of Ray Say. Jim Cartwright directs the play with his creative excellence. It is a Northern Comedy that has steered away from idealism. All characters are real but, at the same time, quirky. A feature common in all characters is that they are more straightforward than usual comedy characters. The language reflects the realistic Northern dialect and sometimes transforms it into poetic rhythms. In some places, the poetry overshadows the realism and words and takes the audiences somewhere else from the materialistic world. In the very next moment, the audience will be taken back to reality. This is the beauty of this great piece of art. Being the audience, you will be roaming around the materialistic world and the euphoria of a serene and noiseless environment.
