"Theatre Lovett, one of the most imaginative and indispensable companies at work today."
Peter Crawley, The Irish Times 2016

Theatre Lovett produce work for all ages. 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).

2016 international touring includes The Kennedy Centre Washington, The Wallis Annenberg Centre, Los Angeles and The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Pennsylvania as part of Culture Ireland’s International Culture Programme. National touring includes the premiere of They Called Her Vivaldi and in late 2016 we undertake an extensive UK and Irish tour with A Feast of Bones by Frances Kay (Dublin Theatre Festival 2013).

Past productions include: They Called Her VivaldiThe True Story of Hansel and Gretel (Dublin Theatre Festival 2015); 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-three years experience in theatre for young audiences.
