By donating to Griffin, you’re supporting some of the most talented, perceptive and thought-provoking playwrights in the country: playwrights like Angus Cerini, winner of the Sydney Theatre Award for best new Australian work, the NSW Premier’s Literary Award and the Helpmann Award for Best Play for The Bleeding Tree, which in 2017 received a remount at Sydney Theatre Company; Ross Mueller, whose office satire A Strategic Plan cut very close to the bone for anyone who has ever worked for a not-for-profit in Australia; Declan Greene, whose incisively provocative modern farce The Homosexuals is currently captivating Sydney audiences and Michele Lee, whose play Rice, winner of the 2016-17 Queensland Premier’s Drama Award, began its life as part of Griffin’s Story Lab and arrives at the Stables in July.
In 2017 across four new works in our Main Season, two special events and four independent plays, Griffin will work with 125 creative professionals, host 72 school students from 42 schools in our Ambassadors program and collaborate with 7 different theatre companies to bring the best new Australian work to audiences.
We can only do it with your help. With Box Office income covering only 35% of our operating costs, it’s only through your generosity that we can continue to run our artistic development programs and help the stories that matter reach the audiences they deserve.
