About the show:
A sensitive musical-prodigy makes a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world. As our young heroine journeys over cobblestones and canals, we learn about love, loss, the place of salt in our diet and the courage to lose our footing without losing our way.
This acclaimed production was selected from 100’s of performances for young audiences to showcase in the USA at IPAY (International Performing Arts for Youth) in January 2017 and will undertake an extensive US tour in 2019.
The production stars the inimitable Louis Lovett, Ireland’s most experienced and critically acclaimed performer for young audiences and well known on the adult stage. Renowned for his natural, playful ability to entertain, engage and enthral, Louis most recently starring in Dublin By Lamplight with Corn Exchange and The Train with Rough Magic both at The Abbey Theatre.
About Theatre Lovett:
Theatre Lovett produce work for all ages, both child and adult, young and old, chicken and egg. Artist Directors Muireann Ahern and Louis Lovett 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. Theatre Lovett want to bring more theatre to more children, more often, touring in Ireland and raising the bar for international touring of Irish theatre for young audiences.
