Cast announced for The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

Vicky Entwistle, Chris Gascoyne & Nancy Sullivan to star in Jim Cartwright’s Award-winning play.

Former Coronation Street actors Vicky Entwistle and Chris Gascoyne are taking leading roles along with Nancy Sullivan in West Yorkshire Playhouse Artistic Director James Brining’s production of Jim Cartwright’s Olivier Award-winning The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.

Nancy Sullivan stars as LV, a painfully shy girl with a bold and beautiful voice, whose blowsy mother Mari, played by Vicky Entwistle, shrieks and shouts her way around the house, all-the-while Chris Gascoyne’s Ray Say engineers his escape from small town show-biz to the bright lights of the big-time. They are joined on stage by Joanna Brookes, Brendan Charleson and Tendayi Jembere.

Artistic Director James Brining said: “There is a wonderful poetry to this play and the relationships Jim creates between his extraordinary characters are funny and moving. I can’t wait to explore this in the rehearsal room with a great company of actors. Nancy has an incredible voice that can transport you and Vicky and Chris have an intuitive understanding of Mari and Ray. I’m looking forward to getting started.”

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice opens at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 15th May before transferring to the West Yorkshire Playhouse on 5th June 2015.
