THEATRE LOVETT ...... IN LOCKDOWN...

...but still free to imagine, create and mess up.

Please do wash your hands before and after (…just don’t wash your hands of us!) but definitely do wash your hands. Theatre Lovett are dutifully maintaining a healthy distance from you, the audience we adore.  We miss you. We hope you and your loved ones are well. The creativity you are showing at home is admirable. Hang in there. Keep it up. We wanted you to know that one of our favourite shows – The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly can be streamed now from the Sydney Opera House as part of their From Our House to Yours Digital Season (that's nice). For free! (that's even nicer!). If you want to pop a penny in the hat, however, to support the work that THEATRE LOVETT do, there is a teeny tiny little donate button hidden under the Support Us Tab at the top of this page - click it and the teeeny yellow button may appear. You might feel good after the workout to get to it. We will thank you. Phew! Enjoy the show!
YOUR TICKET IS A CLICKET!

Theatre Lovett produce work for all ages, both child and adult, young and old. We believe that children and young people can enjoy and understand theatre that does not pretend the adult world is anything other than a complex and occasionally dark place where we must make moral choices for ourselves as individuals.  We  tour extensively both nationally and internationally: amongst others, The Abbey Theatre Dublin, New Victory Theater New York, Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne, Southbank Centre London, Traverse Theatre Edinburgh, The Kennedy Center Washington, The Wallis Annenberg Center Los Angeles, The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Philadelphia and more. May 2019 sees us completing an extensive North American tour supported by Culture Ireland with a return visit January/Feb 2021.  

CURRENT:
OPERA We are delighted to announce our co-production with Irish National Opera and The Abbey Theatre of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel.
