Sarah Drew and Seamus Dever are back, alongside Joanne Whalley (Daredevil on Netflix, The White Princess on Starz, Showtime's The Borgias), and Darren Richardson in Australian playwright and newspaper columnist Hannie Rayson's play about the urgent need to combat man-made climate change to protect biodiversity.

A zoologist in Australia gets funding to save an endangered species from the very company that threatens its existence. Will this deal with the devil allow her to save the species, or will it destroy her entire life's work?

Extinction is directed by Martin Jarvis and is part of the Alfred P. Sloan-funded Relativity Series of science-themed plays, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

Will include Zoom conversation with playwright Hannie Rayson and an expert in the field of zoology.
