Sarah Drew, Seamus Dever and Joanne Whalley Star in L.A. Theatre Works' EXTINCTION Audio Play

Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy, upcoming Freeform drama Cruel Summer), Seamus Dever (Castle), Joanne Whalley (Daredevil on Netflix, The White Princess on Starz, Showtime's The Borgias) and Darren Richardson (Ryan Murphy's Hollywood, over 40 radio plays for the BBC) star in the L.A. Theatre Works state-of-the-art audio theater recording of Extinction, a new play by Australian playwright and newspaper columnist Hannie Rayson about the urgent need to combat man-made climate change to protect biodiversity. Martin Jarvis directs.

In Extinction, 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?

Purchase of the recording includes access to a Zoom interview with playwright Hannie Rayson.
