Director Peter Houghton's 'The Architect' opens to favorable reviews
Congratulations to Cameron’s client director Peter Houghton. Peter’s direction of MTC’s The Architect has been praised in favorable reviews following it’s opening night last Tuesday.
The Architect follows the story of terminally ill Helen, who needs to hire a temporary carer when her partner John heads off on a brief overseas trip. She ends up 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 final moments.
Praise for The Architect and Peter Houghton:
“Director Peter Houghton gets magical performances from Cropper and Carr.” The Age ★★★★
“Director Peter Houghton shows us a masterclass in pacing and tone.. he manages to keep things admirably taut.” Time Out ★★★★
If you’re in Melbourne and keen to see the play, it’s showing at The Sumner within the Southbank Theatre until the 31st of October and you can purchase tickets here at the MTC website.
