About Jailbaby

After a sell-out season and due to astronomical audience demand, Suzie Miller’s Jailbaby returns to Griffin Theatre Company for a highly limited season to kick off 2024.

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.

The 2023 world premiere cast reunite for this crucial interrogation of Australia’s legal system by multi-award-winning playwriting powerhouse Suzie Miller. A thematic 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.
