Meet Me At Dawn
Two women wash up on a distant shore following a violent boating accident. Dazed by their experience, they look for a path home. But they discover that this unfamiliar land is not what it seems – and that, though they may be together, they have never been further apart.
Unflinchingly honest and tenderly lyrical, Meet Me at Dawn is a modern fable exploring the triumph of
everyday love, the mystery of grief, and the temptation to become lost in a fantasy future that will never be.
Inspired by Orpheus’s desperate reclamation of his wife Eurydice from the underworld, Meet Me at Dawn is written by the award-winning playwright Zinnie Harris and directed by the Traverse Theatre's Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin.
This production receives its world premiere at this year's International Festival alongside two Zinnie Harris adaptations – Oresteia: This Restless House and Rhinoceros.
