A Notice from Ell, 1 June



Pricey Grif-friend,

Name me controversial however I’m delighted that at this time is the primary day of winter. I really like the crisp air, the emergence of checkered coats and the scent of a home-cooked pumpkin soup effervescent on the stovetop. The warmers have been turned on within the lobby of the SBW Stables Theatre and each evening, cosy audiences collect to observe a reasonably particular present.

To heat your hearts and tickle you foolish, you must come see Pony earlier than it closes on Saturday 17 June. Should you haven’t seen this new Australian work but, you’re in for an entire lot of laughter with much more coronary heart. The lobby is glistening, the Ginuwine is enjoying and the pinot gris is flowing (wink). And as a girl in her supposedly childbearing prime, I encourage those that don’t have children to come back alongside for a giggle and maybe a sigh of reduction! (Simply kidding.) As soon as Pony leaves the SBW Stables, it’s heading to our nation’s capital; you’ll be able to catch Eloise Snape’s comedy tour de drive at Canberra Theatre Centre from 22 June.

This month additionally marks the time of yr by which your inboxes are possible being stuffed with emails asking for donations marking the finish of the monetary yr. As a member of our Grif-family, you perceive that Griffin is much more that simply an leisure venue. You presumably additionally know that the very affordable price of a Griffin ticket doesn’t cowl the sources needed to supply high-quality Australian theatre. From actors to writers, dramaturgy to developments, directors to designers… there may be a lot that goes on behind the scenes to supply nice new Australian works time and time once more at our theatre.

What Griffin does is a lot greater than programming a brand new play and casting the suitable actors. We meet with early-career artists and listen to their concepts, we frequently host inventive developments for plays-in-progress, and we offer creatives with their very first likelihood to work on knowledgeable manufacturing. At Griffin, we pleasure ourselves on taking work on an entire journey and supporting artists each step of the best way. Whenever you donate to Griffin, you play a significant position in offering artists with the assist they want for the work to land in entrance of audiences in its absolute best kind.  

As somebody who has labored at Griffin since 2017, I really feel so fortunate to work for a corporation so deeply related to its mission. I see the advantages of philanthropy on daily basis at work and even in the event you don’t discover it, I’d say you get pleasure from the advantages too. Particular person donations actually make a distinction within the lives of artists and humanities staff—on behalf of the entire staff at Griffin, I might love you to contemplate making a donation to Griffin Theatre Firm earlier than 30 June.

Griffin is a people-first firm, so in the event you’d like to speak about something ‘Griffin’ or fundraising, my e-mail and telephone line are all the time open. Additionally, if you haven’t already, you must try our 2023 EOFY video, which options the great actors Michelle Lim Davidson and Rebecca Massey alongside our very personal Declan Greene.

With heat winter needs,
