About

“If you’ve ever sat in the theatre and thought, ‘those actors are just too damn far away’, then Griffin is for you.” – Concrete Playground

Located in the heart of Kings Cross—in the historic SBW Stables Theatre—Griffin has been dedicated to bringing the best Australian stories to the stage for the better part of four decades.

We’re passionate about theatre that’s written by Australians, about Australians, for Australians to enjoy. Iconic plays such as The Boys, Holding the ManThe Heartbreak Kid and The Bleeding Tree all had their world premieres at Griffin. And many of our nation’s most celebrated artists started their professional careers with us – Cate Blanchett, David Wenham, Michael Gow and Louis Nowra to name a few.

Homegrown inspiration. By you, for you.
