Griffin Theatre Company
Griffin is the only theatre company in the country exclusively devoted to the development and staging of new Australian writing. Located in the historic S,B&W Stables Theatre, nestled in the heart of Kings Cross, Griffin has been Australia’s home for the exploration of new stories since 1978.
The company is the launch pad for new plays, ideas and writing that other theatres won’t take a risk on. They boldly contribute to Australia’s unique and powerful storytelling culture. Plays like Prima Facie, Holding the Man and City of Gold all had their world premieres at Griffin before going out to capture the national imagination. In the words of its longest-serving Artistic Director, Ros Horin: “We are the theatre of first chances.”
The team is passionate about nurturing emerging and established practitioners alike, priding themselves on supporting its vast community of artists, audiences and supporters who consider the theatre their creative home. They help ambitious, bold, risk-taking and urgent Australian work get from the page onto the stage - telling the stories that help us know who we are as a nation, and who we want to become.
