Summer production – 26th to 29th June 2024

“The Rise and Fall of Little Voice”   by Jim Cartwright

Directed by Judith Mason-Griffiths with Assistant Director Roy Stevens

In a damp, fire-hazard ridden house in Scarborough lives a lonely young girl (LV) and her overbearing mother, Mari. LV doesn’t go out. Her only friends are the stars who sing on the record collection left to her by her late father. By singing along to the records, LV unwittingly starts to impersonate and sound uncannily like the voices on the records.

LV’s constant singing irritates Mari whereas local lotharo and amateur impresario Ray Say instantly recognises LV’s talent. He takes a gamble on promoting LV initially at the local working men’s club but sees a glittering future for her and of course himself as the man who discovered and launched ‘Little Voice.’

Unfortunately not everything goes to plan in this bittersweet story but anyone who enjoys larger than life northern characters and hit songs of yesteryear will enjoy this show.

“Pack of Lies” by Hugh Whitemore

Directed by Roy Stevens

This play is based on the true story behind how an ordinary Canadian
couple, the Krogers, living in the London suburbs, were exposed
by MI5 as Russian spies. Set in 1961, in a house directly opposite
the Krogers’ residence, the Jackson family are visited by MI5,
whose agents discreetly observe a mysterious visitor, to slowly
reveal sinister activities taking place behind the Kroger’s front
door. The presence of MI5 and realisation of the Kroger’s true
purposes place great strain upon the Jacksons, whose lives are
never the same again. This is a highly emotional drama which
conveys the true life pain of deceit and betrayal
