The death of an endangered tiger quoll is the critical backdrop to an Australian story about our very survival. Andy Dixon is a vet who believes strongly in preserving the environment and our natural resources. When his lover, the determined conservation biologist Dr Piper Ross, agrees to undertake research paid for by the CEO of a mining company, he begins to question her methods and his feelings toward her. Little does she know that Andy has been diagnosed with a rare illness, and his life is in as much danger as the species she is trying to save. From the mind of Helpmann Award-winning Australian playwright, Hannie Rayson (Hotel Sorrento, Life After George), comes the world premiere of Extinction, a unique drama with a timely and important message of environmental awareness and conservation.
