Theatre-goers rejoice for Griffin Theatre Company’s 2014 Season has been announced!
“Our 2014 season is a shameless celebration of the depth and breadth of Australian playwriting culture,” said Lee Lewis, whose inaugural season for Griffin reflects her interest in the diversity of what’s been presented across Australian stages. Donna Abela’s Jump For Jordan will open the main season by addressing the social challenges faced by second-generation Australians before Declan Greene’s Eight Gigabytes Of Hardcore Pornography invites audiences to meditate on romance and loneliness in the digital age. Thereafter, the vulnerability of women to sexual violence will take centrestage in Peta Brady’s Ugly Mugs and David Williamson’s comic magnum Emerald City will be revived by Griffin under the direction of Lewis herself. And the goodness doesn’t stop there. Presenting as part of Sydney Festival 2014, Lewis’ The Serpent’s Table will take the form of a theatrical and culinary experience featuring a multi-sensory environment installed at Carriageworks. And for the child in every adult, Griffin will be staging Roald Dahl’s classic The Witches. And then of course there’s the plethora of new productions audiences will experience in Griffin’s independent season.
