The Lewis Trilogy FAQs


All your questions about The Lewis Trilogy answered!

Do I have to see all three plays?
The Lewis Trilogy has been written and directed as just that—a trilogy. Griffin strongly encourages you to binge this Australian extravaganza in the same way you would Angels in America, The War of the Roses, or Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

You can experience the full Trilogy in one of two ways; 

  1. Commit to a full day extravaganza in Louis Nowra’s very own beloved neighbourhood and book in to see the entire Trilogy on one day—commencing at 1pm on either Saturday or Sunday.
  2. Pace out your viewings by attending individual plays at mid-week showings. Wednesday to Friday (with minor exceptions), we will be presenting Summer of the Aliens, Così and This Much is True as individual plays on different evenings. Check the Season Calendar to select your preferred dates.

You cannot currently book to see the plays individually. If you wish to be notified if single tickets become available during the season, please email [email protected].

Do I have to see the plays three nights in a row?
No, you do not have to see the play three consecutive nights in a row. If you choose to see The Lewis Trilogy across multiple mid-week viewings, you have the freedom to set your own schedule! 

Do I have to see the plays in order?
We do recommend that you see the Trilogy in the order it was written; Summer of the Aliens, Così then This Much is True. However, don’t fret if you’re seeing it out of order—you’ll just get an equally exciting alternative experience!

How long is each play?
Each individual play in The Lewis Trilogy is approximately 90 minutes.

Are there intermissions?
Summer of the Aliens, Così and This Much is True do not have intermissions during each play, however, if you are attending a full-day experience, there are breaks in between the plays.

What time is each play if I’m coming for a full-day experience?
