Get ready for a story literally packed full of fun and suspense!

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 then one day, work stops working, and the jobs stop jobbing and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived…and everyone in her city has vanished!

Get ready for a story literally packed full of fun and suspense. Louis Lovett ingeniously performs all the characters as he takes the audience on an untamed adventure. The story unfolds through the transformation of the set’s large whimsical crate, in which props and whole worlds are packed.

As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats and that we should all have the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key!

Show Highlights

Reviews

Louis Lovett delights children and adults. Theatre Lovett is miles ahead of the children’s theatre troupes that I have experienced. They produce theatre that amuses, is playful and challenges their young audiences to think and reason.

NYTheatre.com

Lovett’s endlessly engaging presence, once again proving not just physically dexterous but mentally athletic… Never missing a chance to respond to the chuckles, gasps and vocal contributions of his audience with witty adlibs, Lovett makes the experience seem as natural and interactive as a warm hug.
