2018 Main Season


We’re delighted to unveil our 2018 Main Season—a year of extraordinary new Australian work.

David Finnigan tackles the climate change ‘debate’ in Australia with his 2017 Griffin Award-winning play, Kill Climate Deniers. Directed by Lee Lewis, this is the kind of play other mainstage companies can’t put on—it’s why Griffin exists.

Ever lived in a share-house? Good Cook. Friendly. Clean. is Brooke Robinson’s portrait of a woman slipping through the cracks of Sydney’s housing crisis. Funny until it’s not, Marion Potts directs this not always comfortable but timely play.

The choices of a parent and child collide in Kendall Feaver’s The Almighty Sometimes, directed by Lee Lewis. Quick-witted and bracingly honest, this play will guarantee Kendall a place as one of our next great writers.

Nick Coyle’s The Feather in the Web is an unpredictable and hilarious take on infatuation and self-discovery. Directed by Ben Winspear, the play skewers our obsession with couples and careers, asking just how much we’re willing to give (and lose) for love.
