THEATRE LOVETT: PURVEYORS OF FINE THEATRE

Theatre Lovett produce work for young and old. Since our foundation in 2010 we have had four Dublin Theatre Festival premieres and have toured extensively both nationally and internationally (including Texas, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York’s 42nd Street, Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne, London’s Southbank Centre, Traverse Theatre Edinburgh and beyond).

Our current show The True Story of Hansel and Gretel  will open at the Dublin Theatre Festival 2015. Past productions include; Mr. Foley, The Radio Operator; A Feast of Bones; The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly (originally produced by The Ark/Theatre Lovett); The House that Jack Filled and A Man in Half. Theatre Lovett commissioned B for Baby by Carmel Winters, which was produced by The Abbey Theatre and won Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards in 2010. In 2012 we were the overall winners of The David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Award.  We have a unique Actor Training programme and have presented Masterclasses in Ireland, USA and Australia. Joint Artistic Directors Louis Lovett and Muireann Ahern both have over twenty years experience in theatre.
