Zinnie Harris on exploring love, loss and grief in Meet Me at Dawn

What would happen if you got one more day with the person you’ve lost? How could you exist in that day if you knew it had to come to an end?

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. In the video below, she talks about exploring love, loss and grief.

Meet Me at Dawn will be performed at the 2017 International Festival on 4-27 August at Traverse Theatre, and you can book your tickets now.
