A Be aware From Ell, 18 August



Expensive Grif-friend,

Effectively, nicely, WELL. What every week to be writing the Griffin Information word! It’s been an thrilling time to be a Griff and it’s such a privilege to be sharing all our information with our prolonged Grif-family! I’m Ell and I’m the Relationships Supervisor right here at Griffin. The final time I wrote this word we had been in an prolonged lockdown, however now we’re about to open one other new Australian play, launch our 2023 Season and grow to be house owners of the theatre we’ve referred to as dwelling for the previous 40 years. A refreshing change of tempo!

Tomorrow, we preview Dylan Van Den Berg’s play Whitefella Yella Tree. Dylan developed his script over his time as a Griffin Studio artist in 2021 and it’s unimaginable to see this work come to life. Dylan follows an spectacular checklist of Studio artists who’ve seen their work on the SBW Stables stage: Meyne Wyatt, Suzie Miller and Phil Spencer to call just a few. The ending touches of Mason Browne’s attractive set are being put in place and we stay up for audiences falling in love with Man Simon and Callan Purcell’s performances, as we have already got.

The largest headline this week was that the Neilson Basis has made a game-changing donation of $5 million to Griffin, paving the best way for Griffin to buy the SBW Stables Theatre and adjoining terrace and embark upon a significant redevelopment. The acquisition follows the announcement of profitable artistic capital funding from the NSW Authorities. This funding requires us to boost matched funding dollar-for-dollar, so we will likely be embarking upon an formidable Capital Marketing campaign to make sure our beloved Stables Theatre will get the a lot wanted facelift it deserves. This features a carry, a much-needed rehearsal room, and comfier seats!

Griffin goes by an unimaginable time of change, and you’re a huge a part of that. Your love for brand spanking new Australian writing is what motivates us, and we stay up for offering artists and patrons with an area they really deserve. Above all, we pledge to at all times stay really “Griff” and maintain the center of your loved one theatre on the hill intact.

With care,

Ell Katte
Relationships Supervisor
