SUDAN

by Christine Davey

Sudan is the story of the last white male rhino on earth, his carer, his doctor and the love that binds all three. Sudan is losing - everything - his mind, bodily functions, ability to control his environment and decisions need to be made. HIs carer, Frank, just wants life to go on as normal, his doctor, Cathy, wants life to be a dedication to scientific endeavour. This is a tale of love, connection and the ultimate extinction of a species. How did we get here? How did we let this happen? Where do we go now, when all is said and done and all is lost? This is a hopeful story, funny, thoughtful, and ultimately concerned with humanity and humanity's inhumanity to every living thing. Sudan, Frank and Cathy are all of us, striving for whatever semblance of happiness we can grab, learning to deal with whatever sadness we encounter.
