Our Little Theatre On The Hill

Griffin is the only theatre company in the country entirely devoted to new Australian plays. Located in the historic SBW Stables Theatre, nestled in the heart of bustling Kings Cross, Griffin has been a permanent home for the exploration of Australian stories since 1978.

Many of this country’s most beloved and celebrated artists started out on our stage—Cate Blanchett, Michael Gow, Alma De Groen, David Wenham, to name a few—and iconic Australian plays like The Boys, Holding the Man and City of Gold had their world premieres at Griffin, before going out to capture the national imagination. We are a theatre of first chances.

We are passionate about nurturing emerging artists. We help ambitious, bold, risk-taking and urgent Australian plays get from a page onto a stage. We tell the stories that will help us know who we are as a nation, and who we want to become. Stories about us. Written by us. For us.

Griffin Theatre Company and the SBW Stables Theatre operate and tell stories on the unceded lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We acknowledge and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the oldest continuous living culture on the planet, with more than 60,000 years of storytelling practice shaping and underpinning all aspects of Australian culture. It is a privilege that we do not take lightly: to work on this land, and to tell stories on its soil.

“One of the true gems of the Australian arts scene.” – Time Out

Green Griffin

Griffin is passionate about environmental sustainability. From programming challenging works on the topic (Between Two WavesKill Climate DeniersThe Turquoise Elephant) through to activism and company practices, we’re all about being green. And we’re always looking for new ways to reduce waste, consumption and achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral.

But, we’ve never formalised our commitment to climate action… until now.

Griffin’s Sustainability Action Plan marks the beginning of the company’s formal commitment to environmental sustainability.
