Read Synopsis

As The Architecture of Loss begins, Greg unexpectedly returns to Tucson, to the family that he fled over a decade earlier. Greg’s reunion does not go as he planned when he finds out that his young son, David, disappeared sometime after he left. With lost possibilities and unfulfilled expectations hovering in the intense August heat, Greg, his wife, Catherine, and their daughter, Carmie, re-live David’s disappearance as events are colored through the conflicting memories of wife and daughter. Despite great loss, each day whispers with promises of hope in the face of incalculable loss and the arrival of a cooling rain.

Julia Cho has been a two-time NYTW Emerging Artist of Color Fellow and, along with director Chay Yew, has developed The Architecture of Loss at New York Theatre Workshop over several years.
