One of Australia’s most legendary dramatists, Louis Nowra is synonymous with the beating heart of Kings Cross.
It’s only fitting, then, that Griffin bids a temporary farewell to its home at the SBW Stables Theatre as we know it by staging The Lewis Trilogy—Nowra’s colourful portrait of a life well lived.
Three plays. One ensemble. Ten glorious weeks. What better way to celebrate the Stables’ Darlinghurst legacy before the theatre undergoes its major redevelopment?
With an ensemble of eight of Sydney’s favourite actors including the great Paul Capsis (Angela’s Kitchen), Griffin’s Artistic Director Declan Greene stages three of Nowra’s most iconic plays like you’ve never seen them before—bursting the seams of the SBW Stables Theatre with love, loss and glorious Australiana. Choose to watch all three plays on separate nights or enjoy a magical full-day experience—The Lewis Trilogy is a special event of epic proportions that is not to be missed.
“I wanted the three plays to be really affectionate towards human beings. Another playwright could take the asylum and housing commission and make them into a really dark play. No, I wanted to say that these people make up my world, they’ve influenced me greatly, they give me so much more than I give them.” LOUIS NOWRA

The good news is that we’re changing this with our plans to redevelop the theatre. We can, however, reserve seating for people who have a vision impairment and/or those with limited mobility. If you have any questions regarding our theatre’s accessibility, please visit our website, or contact our Box Office team and we can talk through the options available to you or your theatre companion.
