A Word from Ell, 1 June


Pricey Grif-friend,

Name me arguable however I’m extremely joyful that lately is the primary day of iciness. I like the crisp air, the emergence of checkered coats and the odor of a home-cooked pumpkin soup effervescent at the stovetop. The warmers had been became on within the lobby of the SBW Stables Theatre and each and every night time, comfortable audiences collect to observe a horny particular display.

To heat your hearts and tickle you foolish, you will have to come see Pony sooner than it closes on Saturday 17 June. For those who haven’t observed this new Australian paintings but, you’re in for loads of laughter with much more middle. The lobby is glistening, the Ginuwine is taking part in and the pinot gris is flowing (wink). And as a girl in her supposedly childbearing top, I beg those that don’t have youngsters to come back alongside for a chuckle and possibly a sigh of reduction! (Simply kidding.) As soon as Pony leaves the SBW Stables, it’s heading to our country’s capital; you’ll be able to catch Eloise Snape’s comedy excursion de power at Canberra Theatre Centre from 22 June.

This month additionally marks the time of yr during which your inboxes are most probably being full of emails requesting donations marking the finish of the monetary yr. As a member of our Grif-family, you remember the fact that Griffin is much more that simply an leisure venue. You perhaps additionally know that the very fair price of a Griffin price ticket does now not duvet the assets vital to supply top quality Australian theatre. From actors to writers, dramaturgy to tendencies, directors to designers… there may be such a lot that is going on at the back of the scenes to supply nice new Australian works time and time once more at our theatre.

What Griffin does is so a lot more than programming a brand new play and casting the correct actors. We meet with early-career artists and listen to their concepts, we frequently host ingenious tendencies for plays-in-progress, and we offer creatives with their first actual probability to paintings on a certified manufacturing. At Griffin, we delight ourselves on taking paintings on an entire adventure and supporting artists each and every step of the way in which. While you donate to Griffin, you play a very important function in offering artists with the reinforce they want for the paintings to land in entrance of audiences in its best possible imaginable shape.  

As any person who has labored at Griffin since 2017, I believe so fortunate to paintings for an organization so deeply attached to its challenge. I see some great benefits of philanthropy each day at paintings and despite the fact that you don’t realize it, I’d say you revel in the advantages too. Particular person donations actually make a distinction within the lives of artists and humanities staff—on behalf of the entire group at Griffin, I would like you to imagine creating a donation to Griffin Theatre Corporate sooner than 30 June.

Griffin is a people-first corporate, so if you happen to’d like to discuss the rest ‘Griffin’ or fundraising, my e-mail and telephone line are at all times open. Additionally, if you haven’t already, you will have to take a look at our 2023 EOFY video, which options the glorious actors Michelle Lim Davidson and Rebecca Massey along our very personal Declan Greene.

With heat iciness needs,
