Television actresses Pamela Nomvete and Natasha Sutherland star in the South African premier of Meet me at Dawn.
Directed by Lesedi Job. Inspired by Orpheus’s desperate reclamation of his wife Eurydice from the underworld, Meet Me at Dawn is written by the award-winning British playwright Zinnie Harris. It premiered in the Traverse Theatre at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2017.
Honest and lyrical, Meet Me at Dawn is a 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. 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.
