A co-production between Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC), Arts Centre Melbourne and Red Stitch Actors Theatre will perform Extinction.

Written by Helpmann Award winning playwright and screenwriter Hannie Rayson and will be directed by Nadia Tass, the acclaimed film director and producer.

Starring Red Stitch Actors Theatre ensemble members, Brett Cousins and Extinction will be joined by Natasha Herbert and Colin Lane.

Set in the Victorian Otways, the tiger quoll – the largest marsupial predator on the Australian mainland once ruled the dense forest but is now almost extinct.  A twist of fate on a wild, rainy night and an injured quoll bring together a passionate environmentalist and an unlikely Good Samaritan. Both are hell-bent on saving the species, but the reasons
are murky. In the quest to save the quoll what will be comprised.

Extinction wraps an important conservation message around a unique and personal human story. It will be staged at the Arts Centre Melbourne from 9 to 13 August.
