Stories about us. Written by us. For us.

Griffin is the only theatre company in the country exclusively devoted to the development and staging of new Australian writing. Located in the historic SBW Stables Theatre, nestled in the heart of Kings Cross, Griffin has been Australia’s home for the exploration of new stories since 1979. 

We are the launch pad for new plays, ideas and writing—work that is bold, visionary and risky. Plays like Prima Facie, Holding the Man and City of Gold all had their world premieres at Griffin before going out to capture the national imagination. In the words of our longest-serving Artistic Director, Ros Horin:

We are the theatre of first chances.

We are passionate about nurturing emerging and established practitioners alike. We pride ourselves on connecting a vast community of artists, audiences and supporters who consider our theatre their creative home. We tell the stories that will help us know who we are as a nation, and who we want to become.

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.
