Sarah: This is a play. A play about the thylacine.
Justine: Cool. Can we put in giants, centaurs and ghosts?
Sarah: Look, we’re going to make a serious drama. Ok. The thylacine is extinct.
Justine: Is it? That’s a shame.
Sarah: Yeah, REALLY sad.
Justine: Yeah. Pause. Long Pause. Can we have dry ice?

On an unseasonably cold September day in 1936, the last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart's Beaumaris Zoo. Nearly 80 years after the disappearance of a species, Sarah and Justine believe this story should be told.
A story of extinction and survival, with dry ice (maybe).
