In the wake of the global success of Prima Facie, Griffin is excited to announce the Suzie Miller Award.
The Suzie Miller Award supports mid-career playwrights in the writing and development of daring and innovative new work.
Through the awarding of a full commission and residency at Griffin, as well as mentorship from Suzie Miller herself, the Award provides pathways towards production both within Australia and overseas.
