How do we become the architect of our lives?

Description

Aidan Fennessy‘s The Architect is a moving and thought-provoking new work that highlights the solace we take in moments of unexpected joy whilst navigating the politics and emotions that come with confronting the end of life.

SYNOPSIS

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: Lennie, 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.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

The Architect was first produced by Melbourne Theatre Company, premiering at the South Bank Theatre, The Sumner on September 27, 2018.
