Sometimes it takes a girl-sized human to solve an adult-sized problem. Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And all the while Peggy sings with the voice of an angel – a grossly unfortunate angel, who can’t sing at all. But one day work stops working, and the jobs stop coming, and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived…and everyone in her city gone!
In The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly, ingenious performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure that crosses snowy lands and wild seas. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats, and the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key.

Since its foundation in 2010,, Theatre Lovett has had four Dublin Theatre Festival premieres and has toured extensively both nationally and internationally.The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly is written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, directed by Lynne Parker and performed by Louis Lovett.
