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.
