A Note from Lee, 19 December


“Twas the night before Griffmas,

Another full house,

Not a creature was sleeping,

Not even a spouse.”

Thank you for being the best audience for new plays a company could wish for. Your support, enthusiasm, critical conversations, donations, laughter, applause and encouragement have made it a great year for all the artists and for everyone working in the company. No, seriously: all the actors and playwrights and designers and directors and stage managers rave to us about how great the Griffin audience is and we nod and say very happily “we know!”

Please know we never take you for granted. We hope you are happy with the stories we have brought to you this year. We hope you are inspired to come back next year for more new plays. We hope you have a great holiday!

The office will be closed next week until Wednesday 2 January and the Stables Theatre will be dark until we re-open with our first extraordinary show of the year for Sydney Festival—Omar Musa‘s Since Ali Died.

So have enjoy the sun, have a few glasses of your favourite liquid (cheers to our friends at Four Pillars, thanks for a great year!), hug your loved ones, and we’ll see you in 2019!
