Oswald has ‘Peach’ of a hit at Griffin

Theater sees 75% uptick in auds over past two years

SYDNEY — Debra Oswald has re-earned the title of Griffin Theater Co.s highest-selling playwright with her latest work, “The Peach Season.” Box office for her play about mother love and teen romance has surpassed company’s previous top seller, “Mr Bailey’s Minder,” also by Oswald.

“The Peach Season” had its world preem March 15; it runs another three weeks.

Play stars veterans John Adam, Maggie Blinco and Anne Looby alongside newcomers Maeve Dermody, Alice Parkinson and Scott Timmins.

Griffin has seen a 75% uptick in auds over the past two years and this year will extend the run of each of its season’s four shows by two weeks.

Griffin artistic director David Berthold described “Peach Season” as “a deeply humane play,” adding, “Audiences have flocked because they are clearly hungry for a story that expresses something complex about the way we love and the way we sometimes ‘edit’ our lives. It’s a play that grabs the heart with a muscularity and incisiveness that is completely refreshing.”

“Mr Bailey’s Minder” opened at Griffin in 2004 and is currently touring Australia starring Kate Mulvany, Jonathan Elsom, Andy Rodoreda and Kirrily White.
