The Girl Who Forgot to Sing BadlyTheatre Lovett

May 2 – 4, 2013  ·  Harold Prince Theatre

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! Ingenious Irish performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on this 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. Hailed as “the theatrical equivalent of going to bed on Christmas Eve” by The Sunday Times, The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly is equal parts adventure and sheer delight.

Recommended for ages 7+
