After a sell-out season and due to astronomical audience demand, Griffin is thrilled to announce the return of Suzie Miller’s Jailbaby for a highly limited season to kick off 2024.

This wasn’t how it was meant to go. 

A few iPhones, a huge TV and a Socceroos jersey – shove them all in the IKEA bag then drive away as fast as you can. 

AJ wasn’t meant to be spotted at the scene. AJ wasn’t meant to get ID’d in the line up. AJ definitely wasn’t meant to go to prison. But once AJ is convicted of theft, he is placed behind the walls of an institution where his own body is stolen from him. 

In a cramped communal cell, AJ will become a ‘jailbaby’ – the ward of a justice system that chooses to turn a blind eye to the life-altering sexual violence committed against young men behind bars.

Performers Lucia MastrantoneAnthony Taufa and Anthony Yangoyan are reunited with director Andrea James for this crucial interrogation of Australia’s legal system by multi-award-winning playwriting powerhouse Suzie Miller. A spiritual sequel to her international phenomenon Prima Facie, Miller once again opens our eyes to the darkest corners of society and asks us to pinpoint the exact moment when it all goes so, so wrong.
