Griffin Studio is one of the longest-running artist programs in Australia, with a solid track record of ushering vibrant—and important—new works to the stage. In 2024, we are looking for another batch of playwrights to join us for a one-year residency.
Over 2024, Studio playwrights will develop a new play with support from Griffin’s Artistic team, while undertaking workshops on aspects of playwriting and theatremaking.
