This is the story of Peggy, and the packing, and the blizzard, and the boat.
Peggy O'Hegarty and her parents are packers. They pack one kind of thing, into another kind of thing. But one day the phone it forgets to keep ringing - because all of the people in her city are gone. So Peggy goes out to explore.
"Like a daydream born beneath a dining room table... The entire show hums with nimble, exploratory intelligence, captivating attentions and keeping pace with restless imaginations; a story of ingenious packers that always boxes clever" - Irish Times
The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly was commissioned by The Ark and Theatre Lovett (Ireland) and premiered in 2010 directed by Lynne Parker. It was the first children's show ever selected to be part of the ReViewed program at the Dublin Theatre Festival.

Theatre Lovett/The Ark production 2013, starring Louis Lovett
"The story centres on Peggy Oâ€™Hegarty and her parents who were packers: â€œI want 17 foxes in boxes by breakfastâ€. Their work runs on the rocks â€“ â€œone day, the phone, it forgot to keep ringingâ€. Although the â€˜issuesâ€™ in this play do not have overt designs on the audience, being primarily about story-telling, the imagination and the transformative power of theatre, Lucy did pick up on a message here: â€œWhen you grow up youâ€™ll be amazed how many people donâ€™t have jobs or money."
