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?
Sarah: We’ll see.

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).
