Griffin Theatre Company has unveiled its 2024 Season including the monumental production of Louis Nowra’s The Lewis Trilogy, marking the final production to be staged at the iconic SBW Stables Theatre before it undergoes major redevelopment works.

Spanning across five decades in changing Australia, Griffin’s sentimental production of The Lewis Trilogy chronicles the arc of Lewis’ life as he ages from a teenaged boy to a young man to a local veteran of Kings Cross. As the sun sets on Lewis’ journey, audiences will leave the cosy historic home of Griffin Theatre for the last time - seeing Kings Cross in a different light.

The remainder of the 2024 season has something for everyone including an exclusive season of the delicate performance poem swim presented at Carriagework, a Queer pop spectacular in collaboration with Hayes Theatre Co., and two special return seasons.

Artistic Director Declan Greene said, “We're wishing a sweet (temporary) goodbye to the SBW Stables in 2024 - but we're looking at this as an opportunity to create theatre in ways we've never dreamed before, with our mates at Carriageworks, The Hayes Theatre Co, Sydney Theatre Company, and beyond. Oh, and before we hit the road, we're casually doing the biggest show in Griffin's history - the first ever production of Louis Nowra's entire "Lewis Trilogy"... All 5 hours of it. It's gonna be a hell of a year."
