2016. Ready, set, GO! The Griffin staff are back in the office. Alana Valentine’s Ladies Day is in rehearsal. Reg Cribb’s Thomas Murray and the Upside Down River moves into the theatre next week as the first Griffin Independent play of the year. The Lysicrates Prize shortlist plays will be onstage at the Conservatorium at the end of the month. The inbox is full of new Griffin Award plays. Thank you to all the playwrights around the country who have been wrestling words onto pages through the holiday season so that scripts for 2016 are ready. It’s going to be a great year for Australian plays.
As I was sitting in a kayak down at Jervis Bay talking about how huge this year is for Griffin a great friend said…
“If you think you’ve bitten off more than you can chew… chew harder.”
Happy New Year. Welcome to the feast of new plays on stage at the Stables.
