Half-term fun for families!
THE GIRL WHO FORGOT TO SING BADLY
Saturday 2 - Friday 8 June, 11am and 2pm at the Southbank Centre
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!
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.
Directed by one of Ireland's most celebrated directors (recipient of the Irish Times Special Tribute Award 2009 for her contribution to Irish Theatre). Performed by Ireland's most experienced and critically acclaimed actor for young audiences.
'Chock full with playfulness and rich ideas... Lovett makes the experience seem as natural and interactive as a warm hug.' (The Irish Times)
