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.
