WHAT’S WORTH SAVING? HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?
“Rayson has a well-deserved reputation for writing challenging, compelling and insightful drama” Limelight
The tiger quoll once ruled Victoria’s dense Otway forest but is now almost extinct. A wild, rainy night, a twist of fate and an injured tiger quoll bring together a passionate environmentalist and an unlikely Good Samaritan. Both are hell-bent on saving the species, but intentions are murky. What will be compromised in the quest to save the quoll? Nothing is black and white in this intriguing story about love, sex, money and power played out under the shadow of global warming.
Extinction is a timely and intelligent new Australian play by Helpmann award winning playwright and screenwriter Hannie Rayson (Hotel Sorrento, Life After George), directed by acclaimed film director and producer Nadia Tass (Malcolm, Matching Jack). It delves deep into the heart of our own morals, choices and tightly-held convictions. Extinction wraps an important conservation message around a unique and personal human story. What would you choose?
