They Saw A Thylacine
By Human Animal Exchange
Created and Performed by Justine Campbell & Sarah Hamilton

On an unseasonably cold September day in 1936, the world’s last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart’s Beaumaris Zoo.
Out of the darkness, Sarah Hamilton and Justine Campbell conjure the ghost of one of our lost beauties – the thylacine. With the suspense and warmth of a campfire story, these feisty, funny women weave a lyrical tale of discovery and destruction.
For this thylacine tracker and zoo keeper’s daughter, it’s a quest to protect a threatened creature…and themselves.
Gutsy and rebellious, this beautiful reimagining of Australia’s lost history shines a light on extinction and our own survival.
