About: Architecting

Creating a requiem for modern America, this exhilarating saga weaves through the country’s past and future, providing an insightful analysis of the American psyche.

Through the eyes of young architect Carrie Campbell, the production looks at mourning and healing during moments of apocalypse, disaster and change.

Rocketing from a condemned bar in post-Katrina New Orleans to the deep south of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind, Architecting tells the story of Americans trying to survive as the world changes under their feet.

Architecting is a musical, multi-media time-bending epic, full of witty and surreal images.

‘Architecting is a virtuoso plundering of American literature and history. Fiercely intelligent, it has moments of satirical humour and is acted with skill and energy.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Stimulating. Energising. Refreshing. Wake up in 2009 at the hands of a theatre company who knows what it’s doing.’ The New York Times on Architecting
