For thirty years, Griffin Theatre Company has been Australia’s new writing theatre.
The resident theatre company of the historic SBW Stables Theatre in Kings Cross, Griffin dedicates itself to the nurture, presentation and promotion of outstanding Australian playwriting and contemporary theatre. An engine-room for theatrical discovery, ingenuity and diversity, Griffin exists to bring playwrights and new writing for the stage to national and international attention.
Retaining a special place in the performing arts landscape, Griffin is a key portal for the profession at large – a gateway for actors, designers, directors and of course, playwrights.
Having produced numerous groundbreaking plays since its establishment in 1979, Griffin continues to invest in artistic and audience development – with professional residencies for playwrights and directors, a workshop and commissions program, education and outreach projects and an annual program of works in development.
Griffin has a reputation for artistic excellence, its low-fi atmosphere, and its role as a major force in shaping the future of Australian theatre.
The Cross Art Projects foregrounds contemporary work that reflects the multiple relationships between art and life, art and the public sphere and explores the boundaries of this context. We are attentive to the local without sacrificing the scope of indigenous and international views. Cross Art enhances its projects with conversations, roundtables and screenings including talks by local activist, architectural and heritage groups.
