By donating to Griffin, you’re supporting some of the most talented, perceptive and thought-provoking writers in the country: writers 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; Alana Valentine, who through Ladies Day, skilfully wove interviews with the gay community in Broome into a play that spoke to us all about tolerance and the right to tell one’s own story; Justin Fleming, whose extraordinary talent for the vernacular brought a 17th Century French farce to contemporary Sydney in The Literati; and Phillip Kavanagh, who in his first mainstage production, Replay, invited us to reflect on the intransigence of fate and the inescapable bonds of family.
In 2016 across five new works in our Main Season, two special events and three independent plays, Griffin will work with 136 creative professionals, host 75 school students 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.
