Declan Greene appointed Artistic Director of Griffin Theatre Company
A massive congratulations to Yellow’s Declan Greene who has just been announced as the new Artistic Director of Griffin Theatre Company.
In their announcement Griffin Theatre Company states:
“Lee Lewis, Griffin’s outgoing Artistic Director said, “One of the most original and talented theatre makers in the country, Declan will be a great leader for Griffin and the artistic community as we face the challenges of the next few years. His work has always been inventive, provocative and entertaining and has displayed an inspiring integrity and versatility. I am very excited by his appointment and look forward to watching how Griffin will grow with a playwright at its helm.”
On the appointment, Declan said, “Over my career I’ve been guided by Lee’s mentorship, as both a playwright and a director, and it’s an honour to be continuing her legacy at Griffin. I’ve been in love with this theatre for years—its wonky, perfect stage, and its audiences, who are the most intrepid, curious theatre-goers in this country. I’m beyond excited that I get to keep making work for them in collaboration with this country’s most visionary writers, as we evolve Griffin into a hub of radical artistic and social transformation.”
Congratulations again! We can’t wait to see what exciting things Declan will bring to the Sydney Theatre Scene.
