Meet Me at Dawn
by Zinnie Harris
Directed by David Gassner
March 24 - April 8, 2023
18th & Union, Seattle WA
After a boating accident, two women wash up on a distant shore. They look for a path home, but discover that this unfamiliar land is not what it seems. Loosely inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, Zinnie Harris' Meet Me at Dawn is a tenderly lyrical and utterly modern fable exploring the mystery of grief and the triumph of everyday love.
An 85-minute symphony of loss, longing, and occasional wild comedy...a 21st century classic. -The Scotsman
