Theatre Lovett produce work for all ages. We  tour extensively both nationally and internationally: amongst others, New Victory Theater New York, The Sydney Opera House, Arts Centre Melbourne, Southbank Centre London, Traverse Theatre Edinburgh, The Kennedy Center Washington and The Wallis Annenberg Center Los Angeles. Our most recent production (2020) was Humperdinck's opera Hansel and Gretel in a co-production with Irish National Opera, Theatre Lovett and The Abbey Theatre (National Theatre of Ireland). 
Muireann Ahern and Louis Lovett are Joint Artistic Director of the company and work closely with a family of associate artists who share our  ambition, spirit and love of play. We run a well established actor training course ‘Playing for your Audience’ at The Gate Theatre Dublin.  Our Teddy Talks is a series of advice clinics for artists and professionals focusing on theatre for young audiences.
We are proud to be supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and are grateful to Culture Ireland for the continued generous support of our international touring. Theatre Lovett's Agents for North America are  Holden & Arts Associates, Austin, TX 78765.
