Running a theatre in Australia is not the faint-hearted and one Sydney theatre that has been hanging in for the past 46 years is the Griffin Theatre in Kings Cross. Artistic Director Lee Lewis originally trained as an actress in the US but back in Australia she’s proved that showcasing the best of Australian playwriting pays dividends. Join Lee Lewis as guest for In Conversation with Michael Morton-Evans on 2pm Wednesday 10 February. 

In Conversation is presented by one of Australia's best interviewers - veteran of print, film and broadcast media, Michael Morton-Evans
