Griffin's Really Intimate Theatre

Along with being one of Sydney’s oldest theatre companies, Griffin Theatre Company boasts one of the city’s most intimate venues.

For almost 30 years, the tiny Stables Theatre in King Cross has punched way above its weight, launching the careers of Australian writers and premiering legendary plays including Away, The Boys and Holding the Man.
Griffin relies on donations. For their End Of Financial Year campaign, they needed something that stood out (and compelled people to part with their hard earned cash). So we drew upon the one feature that makes Griffin so special: the incredible intimacy of their theatre experience.

Designed in collaboration with architect Jon King, and hosted for one day only at Circular Quay, Griffin’s Really Intimate Theatre took ‘up close and personal’ to the next level. One actor. One audience member. One tiny room.

"The intensity of the relationship between the actor and the audience of one was totally transformative,” said Jon King. “In that most public of Australian spaces you were taken on a very personal and intimate and ultimately powerful journey.”
From the time our mini theatre opened in the early morning, an amazing 75 individual performances were clocked up over six hours. Thanks to everyone who donated their time and energy to making it happen including Kite, RE and Griffin.
