Karin Mainwarning grew up in the badlands of Adelaide. She trained as an actress, at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Her playwriting credits include Binge @ Griffin, The Rain Dancers and Stiffs at Sydney Theatre Company and Melbourne Theatre Company. She is the only Australian playwright to have work performed by La Comédie-Française. Karin's work is characterised by the darkness of its humour and the verbal fluency, cruelty and violence of her language.
