I saw They Saw a Thylacine at the 2013 Fringe, at its first show. It won Best of the Fringe (performance) and other awards because it was gorgeous and powerful and it's written is off-the-chart wonderful. The audience barely breathed in case they missed any of it.
The cage, skulls and glitter from the first tiny-venue production are gone, but the new design and tighter script are perfect for the big stage. It's still everything that it was and more.
And I still have to believe that somewhere in the deep forests of Tasmania there are some thylacines who know that they must never be seen.
My review is here on The Age/SMH.
