Book by Karin Baker

Won best musical for 2011 Midtown International Theatre Festival


PEG O’ MY HEART is set in 1920 and tells the story of Peg O’Connell, an uneducated but fiery young Irish girl is living with her father in New York City. Due to a series of strange circumstances, she is forced to travel to England and live with her dead mother’s family. This wealthy, yet highly dysfunctional family, must tutor Peg in the ways of society and make her a lady or she will be cut off from her dead uncle’s estate. The unsuspecting Peg dispenses large doses of common sense and joy to her English kin and the wealthy society they belong to. This heart-warming comedy has been proven a timeless classic, and in this new updated musical format, retains the power and charm to draw audiences for a new millennium.
