A Note from Lee, 30 August


Do you…

Love plays?

Love plays that are new?

Love plays that are written for you? About you? About people you know?

Love plays that are not afraid to criticise you?

Love plays that try to show you how our world can be better?

Love plays that make you laugh at yourself? At the absurdity of the world?

Love plays that frighten you? Love plays that make you think?

Love plays that show you the best Australian actors doing what they do best?

Love plays on a stage so close you can touch the drama?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you belong at Griffin.

Subscribe to Griffin’s 2019 Season and see plays that you will love. You will laugh, you will cry, you will be scared, you will despair, you will find hope, you will recognise yourself, you will disagree with friends about which play was the best, you will think in new ways, you will see new ideas. You will be in the home of Australian plays. You will be welcome. I can’t wait to see you there.

But before I do, we’ve still got the rest of 2018’s adventure ahead of us. If you haven’t seen Kendall Feaver‘s The Almighty Sometimes yet, you only have until Saturday 8 September to get tickets—and they’re selling out, so act fast. While you’re at it, make plans to see The Misanthrope by Justin Fleming after Molière starring the fabulous Danielle Cormack, Bec Massey and Simon Burke, opening tomorrow night at Sydney Opera House. Woohoo!
