Multi-award winning writer Zinnie Harris draws on the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice in this gripping tale of devotion and loss.
“I was near to death but I got this incredible surge, this superhuman surge, and I swam. I swam.”

When a boat trip goes horribly wrong, Helen and her girlfriend Robyn find themselves stranded on an island in the middle of the sea. As the night draws in, it becomes clear that the island is not as it first appears. And neither are Helen and Robyn.

Meet Me At Dawn 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 widespread acclaim in 2017.

Zinnie Harris’ plays include How To Hold Your Breath (Royal Court), Further than the Furthest Thing (National Theatre / Tron Theatre) and This Restless House (National Theatre of Scotland / Edinburgh International Festival / Citizens Theatre).
