Support the Future of Australian Storytelling with a Gift in Your Will

For over 40 years, Griffin Theatre Company has been Australia’s premier new writing theatre. The resident company and now the proud owners of the historic Stables Theatre in Kings Cross, Sydney, Griffin is dedicated to nurturing, presenting and promoting outstanding Australian playwriting and contemporary theatre. An engine room for theatrical discovery, ingenuity and diversity, Griffin exists to bring Australian playwrights and new writing for the stage to national and international attention.

We have produced over 400 new Australian works and launched the careers of some of this country’s most prolific playwrights and screenwriters: Michael Gow, Tommy Murphy, Debra Oswald, Andrew Bovell, Kendall Feaver, and Angus Cerini; and actors, including Cate Blanchett, David Wenham, Jacqueline Mackenzie, Sarah Snook and Meyne Wyatt—just to name a few.

Our GFFs (Griffin Friends Forever) play a crucial role in the growth and development of the future of Australian theatre. Griffin was built on the passion, generosity and vision of past generations and, with your support, will continue to grow for many generations to come. By remembering Griffin Theatre Company in your will, you’ll be helping future audiences to enjoy new Australian stories as you do today.

Your gift expresses your lasting love for Griffin Theatre Company, our country’s only theatre dedicated to the development and staging of outstanding new Australian plays.

Griffin is the “theatre of first chances.”—Ros Horin, our longest-serving Artistic Director

Help us continue to be the theatre of first chances for many more playwrights, artists, designers and arts workers to come.
