Monash academic and researcher Associate Professor Jane Griffiths has been nominated as best actor in the 2017 Green Room Awards for her performance in Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, ‘Wit’.
The production played to sell-out audiences, rave reviews, and made the pick of all major Melbourne theatre critics in their yearly round-ups.
Most importantly, it received the approval of Ovarian Cancer Australia (for whom the production held a benefit performance), and has formed the basis of a Monash/Warwick Alliance grant to examine the role theatre can play in empathetic engagement with, and public health education on, Ovarian Cancer, and also a Monash Arts Faculty seed funding grant to pursue an ARC Linkage between producing theatre companies and Ovarian Cancer Australia.
The project is a wonderful example of the impact that Monash academics are making and is also an inspiring example of the benefits of collaboration across disciplines, institutions and sectors.
This production was made possible by the generous support of the Monash Academy of Performing Arts, and the Pratt Foundation through its ongoing financial sponsorship of the Monash Centre for Theatre and Performance practice as research projects.
The Green Room Awards are Melbourne’s premier performing arts industry awards and recognise excellence and innovation across a range of categories. Winners will be announced on March 27th.
