Dark Comedy to kick off spring at The Ten Fifteen

Described as “Original, hilarious and hauntingly sad,” The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is the second production of the community theater’s season lineup.  Director Edward James leads a cast of six actors through a black comedy that will make you laugh, cry, and sing.

About the Show:  Blown fuses, real and metaphorical, punctuate the action with flashes of pent up energy in this acclaimed play. The diminutive heroine frequently plunges the dilapidated house she shares with her alcoholic mother into darkness by playing her dead father's records at a volume matched only by the soulful power of her vocal impressions. Little Voice has a hidden talent: she can emulate every chanteuse from Judy Garland to Edith Piaf. She hides in her room, crooning and dreaming of love, while her disheveled mother mistakes a seedy agent's interest as affection rather than enthusiasm for the gold mine buried in her daughter's throat. This is an engaging fairy tale of despair, love and finally hope as LV finds a voice of her own.
