What's On

The Architect
 

From award-winning playwright Aidan Fennessy (What Rhymes with Cars and Girls) comes a moving and thought-provoking new work that grapples with one of life’s biggest questions. Directed by Peter Houghton (The Odd Couple) this empathetic and surprisingly humorous story navigates the politics and emotions that come with confronting the end of life and the solace we take in moments of unexpected joy.

Hiring a temporary carer requires some serious vetting and when Helen’s partner John heads off on a brief overseas trip she concedes to the arrangement by appointing the least likely candidate; a dubious young drifter and jack-of-all-trades. With an incorrigible zest for life, he could be just the medicine she needs – if it wasn’t for the monumental secret he’s hiding. As their disparate worlds collide and an unexpected bond forms, Helen turns to Lennie to help face her reality.
