  • Faggots (with mash and gravy)

      Declan Greene’s The Homosexuals or ‘Faggots’ was commissioned by friends of Bruce Meagher and Greg Waters in celebration of a significant anniversary for the pair. So when they all attended the show last week, Greg arrived at the Griffin kitchen ready to cook up some delicious faggots to serve afterwards in honour of the show, [...]

  • A Note from Lee, 13 April

    A big hello from Parramatta where I am rehearsing Smurf In Wanderland. Writer David Williams has created a very personal examination of what it means to be a football fan. It is touching, funny and fascinating. On paper. But David is also performing it. And so like all actors, he is wrestling with the enormous [...]

  • A Note from Lee, 30 March

    Joy of joys – sitting in the audience for The Homosexuals on Tuesday night and watching Declan Greene’s writing making Justin Fleming laugh. Of course I love how much all our audiences are enjoying this farce, but playwrights enjoying each other’s work is really great. Like when Declan came back from seeing Mark Colvin’s Kidney at Belvoir raving about how amazing Tommy Murphy is. Writing [...]

  • Peter’s Tortilla Recipe

    This week Peter has departed from his usual sweet creations and gone in a distinctly Spanish, savoury direction with a delicious tortilla. It’s the perfect treat to power you through the end of the working week (and fool you into thinking you’re dining in a Spanish tapas bar instead of sitting in an office meeting). [...]

  • A Note from Lee, 16 March

    Friday night will be the first preview of Declan Greene’s The Homosexuals or ‘Faggots’.

It’s [...]

  • Lane’s farewell cake

    We’ve been graced at Griffin with another amazing confection by our resident cake-wizard Peter, this time in honour of the lovely Lane’s departure. This nutty, squishy-with-dates delight is Peter’s take on Karen Martini’s interpretation of Dan Lepard’s “Marrakesh Express loaf cake”. Recipe here. (Peter has made some secret tweaks we’re not allowed to share publicly [...]

  • A Note from Phil, 16 February

    I have been a long time campaigner for people’s right to wear short pants at the theatre. It’s an issue that is very dear to my heart, as a person who loves theatre and as a person who is, generally, a bit sweaty. And to the naysayers I say, just because you can see my [...]

  • Griffin Up Late

    A post-show jam of music and chortles.

  • A Note from Phil, 2 February

    At 9.15am this morning, on the train to work, I saw a proper grown-up business(y) woman sprint from the platform, throw herself through closing doors, hurry up the stairs and nestle down into a seat. Then, this proper grown-up woman, tore her handbag open and with a delirious, half-crazed look in her eyes, took a [...]

  • 2017 Lysicrates Prize Cast & Creatives

    Now in its third year, the Lysicrates Prize is a philanthropic initiative presented by  The competition is only open to writers who’ve had three or more mainstage plays produced. In contrast to the Griffin Award, which is open to writers at every stage of their career, the Lysicrates Prize is intended to support established artists; [...]

  • A Note from Will, 19 January

    This week a patron questioned the use of the phrase ‘Happy New Year’. It’s not so much the ‘New’ that she took issue with, it was just that after two weeks back in the office, the ‘Happy’ had started to wear off. If you’re feeling the familiar yoke settle a little heavily this January then [...]

  • Friday the 13th: Dress up and win

    This Friday the 13th, we decided to turn the supposedly unluckiest day upside-down, and offer one punter a double pass to any 2017 Griffin Main Season production in the funnest way we could think of: a dress-up competition. Fags, blood, zombies or ghouls, it’s Halloween come early at the Stables and we want you to dress your most [...]

  • 10 Minutes With Sheridan Harbridge

    Who is Sheridan Harbridge?I’ve been called everything in my time – from a Wise-Arse Wench, to a Gay Icon, to a Potty Mouthed Pest. I think I’m a theatremaker who loves whimsy and raucousness.  Who inspires you and why?I’m inspired by performers and companies who cross genres –  Alan Cummings is very fascinating to me, [...]

  • A Note From Lee, 5 January

    New Year! To do: 1. Paint the graffiti off the orange stage door entrance. 2. Drop in in the rehearsal room for Ross Mueller’s A Strategic Plan…they look like they are having way too much fun. 3. Buy a raincoat so I can sit in the front row for the first preview of Nosferatutu on Saturday - the first preview [...]

  • A note from Lee, 19 December

    So because things are not busy enough in the rush to Christmas (starting A Strategic Plan rehearsals, hosting a fundraiser for Nosferatutu, saying farewell to our Associate Producer, Melanie Carolan, who is moving to Critical Stages) we decided to hold our annual General Auditions. Each actor was invited to perform two monologues from Australian plays, and I have to say [...]

  • 10 Minutes with Sam McCool

    Griffin’s last indie show for 2016, Lighten Up, is just around the corner. This very funny play by actor Nicholas Brown and comedian Sam McCool tells a universal tale of identity, cultural assimilation and bleaching your bits. This is Sam McCool, writer, performer, and all round funny-guy. Who is Sam McCool?Sam McCool, Comedian, World-Traveller and Play-Raita. [...]
