“What do you do when you are marooned on a tiny sand bank with your girlfriend and she starts to go crazy? That is a question for you angels.”
Two women wash up on a distant shore following a 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.
From multi-award winning writer Zinnie Harris (How To Hold Your Breath, Royal Court; Further than the Furthest Thing, National Theatre), 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.
Unflinchingly honest and tenderly lyrical, it comes to London for the first time in a new production by Murat Daltaban, whose staging of Zinnie Harris’ Rhinoceros (after Ionesco) at the Edinburgh Lyceum won critical acclaim in 2017.
