Writer Suzanna Fisher has lived on several different continents. She is a nature lover, and settled in Australia, where she spent most of her young adult life. After returning to Australia, she noticed that like most tropical rainforests of the World, the "Land Down Under" was losing much of its natural ecological resources. Suzanna wrote the play to help people better understand what it means when we ignore the environment our species depends on for its very survival.
