ABOUT THE PLAY
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.
The Architect is a moving and thought-provoking new work that grapples with one of life’s biggest questions – how do we become the architect of our lives?
