Meet Me at Dawn by Zinnie Harris at this year's Edinburgh International Festival

The Traverse is delighted to announce today our co-production with the Edinburgh International Festival; Meet Me at Dawn, a new work by Zinnie Harris.

Alongside a full #TravFest17 programme, this exciting production will premiere at the Traverse as part of #EdintFest, and run from 6 to 27 August 2017. 

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.

Tickets are currently available only from the Edinburgh International Festival box office, and adhere to EIF's concession policies, fees and ticketing terms.
