A Observe from Khym, 21 April

Expensive Grif-friend,

Precisely 4 years in the past this week I first heard the outstanding phrases of Suzie Miller’s Prima Facie learn for the primary time by means of Sheridan Harbridge whilst sitting at Lee Lewis’s eating desk.

Soar ahead to the current day and Sheridan continues to so generously percentage her atypical and award-winning efficiency to sold-out audiences throughout Australia—once I final noticed her in Geelong she had simply finished her a hundred and fiftieth efficiency. It method such a lot to Griffin that we will be able to take this tale and this name to fingers to regional audiences with the similar roughly intimacy because the premiere season on the SBW Stables Theatre season. It’s precisely this sort of new Australian writing that is helping us to understand who we’re as a country, who we need to transform, and makes us take motion. In the event you’re in travelling distance of Wagga Wagga, Wodonga, or Toowoomba, don’t pass over out.

On the identical time, Suzie is in New York, with the West Finish manufacturing of Prima Facie lately in preview performances and about to open on Broadway. We’re so happy with Suzie and the whole thing she has continues to succeed in (together with her contemporary Olivier), and grateful that she nonetheless unearths a treasured few hours within the wee hours of the morning to proceed operating with us on her subsequent play Jailbaby that hits the SBW Stables Theatre level in July.

Again in 2019, after that first week of rehearsals involving birthday cake at Lee’s space and full of life conversations at Suzie’s, we moved to a practice session room on the College of Sydney. It’s the similar room through which we’ve simply begun rehearsing Eloise Snape’s Pony. In the event you have been fortunate sufficient to look the wild spectacle of Intercourse Magick, you’ll no doubt know that Griffin doesn’t do exactly one-woman productions. But if we do, you’ll need to come alongside. Briallen Clarke goes to have you ever placing off each one in all her phrases as she navigates lifestyles’s surprising hurdles with a riotous yeehaw and a rocking soundtrack.

When you look forward to Pony to hit the level, you’ll be able to catch UFO for the following two weeks, created by means of re:staff efficiency collective as the primary providing of Griffin Lookout in 2023. It’s an creative, resourceful and implausible piece of theatre that can make you ponder what you can do when all of your lifestyles is all at once faced by means of one thing bewildering and unknown—which we’re no doubt all slightly conversant in. You’ll additionally need to keep smartly after the home lighting fixtures come as much as rise up shut and private with the set—it’s actually a banquet for the eyes (however I can no longer say too a lot more!).

In spite of everything, I’m extremely joyful to tell you that tickets for each unmarried Griffin manufacturing for 2023 are actually on sale! In fact, the most efficient and maximum reasonably priced approach to save at Griffin is to subscribe, however for those who’re on the lookout for standalone outings to the SBW Stables Theatre—you understand what to do!

See you in our theatre quickly,
