Architect Theatre was founded in 2008 by Georgina Beaty and Jonathan Seinen.


Architect Theatre is propelled by stories untold, by rocks unturned, by relationships unexposed. We refuse pre-fabricated housing. We build theatre pieces that respond to the dynamic lives they express and constantly seek to subvert and re-invent our methodology so that we, and our audiences, honestly hear each story we tell.[1]

Ongoing Projects

Currently, Architect Theatre is developing a piece currently titled The Golden Spike (formerly titled The Pipeline Project), a research-based play about pipelines in Northern BC. Georgina Beaty and Jonathan Seinen have been joined by Director Anita Rochon for this project. Research began in November 2012 when the company spent three weeks travelling between Prince George and Kitimat, BC, and returned again in October 2013 to continue development.[2]
