The Union Theatre announces final show before moving venues

It has been announced that The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright will be the final production to be staged at the Union Theatre before it moves to its new home.

Directed by Alastair Knights, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice opens on 4th June (previews from 1st June) and runs until 26th June 2016.

The Union Theatre's artistic director Sasha Regan says: “Twenty years ago when I opened the doors of the Union Theatre I never dreamed that this small arch under the railway in Southwark could achieve so much. 

"I’m thrilled that our final show at the original Union is Jim Cartwright’s magnificent play ‘The Rise and Fall Of Little Voice’ in a new production directed by Alastair Knights and produced in association with Aaron Rogers. I hope that friends of the Union old and new come back to celebrate and say a fond farewell to a little theatre that has truly found is the last production in it’s 20 year rich history of plays, operas and musicals. its own voice”.

The comedy tells the story of LV, a painfully shy girl who spends most of her time listening to her late father’s collection of old records and perfecting her astonishing impersonations of classic divas. But when her mother’s scheming boyfriend attempts to create the show of the century with Little Voice as its star - will all go according to plan? Or will LV find her voice in another way?
