This show is proud to be part of Auckland Pride Festival 2024. 

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.

Zinnie Harris is multi-award-winning playwright whose plays have been commissioned and produced by the Royal Court Theatre, The National Theatre, the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Shakespeare Company. 

Don’t miss the New Zealand Premiere of Zinnie Harris’ play, Meet me at Dawn, at Q Theatre Loft this Pride season.
