About Meet Me at Dawn

Two women wash up on a distant shore following a 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. Loosely inspired by the story of Orpheus and Euridice, Meet Me at Dawn is a modern fable exploring the mystery of grief and the triumph of everyday love.

A 21st century classic full of its own passionate poetry, its own love, and its own despair...  -The Scotsman

Meet Me at Dawn was first presented at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as part of the Edinburgh International Festival, on 4 August 2017. This is the play's US premiere.

Radial Theater Project

Since its establishment in 2011, Radial Theater Project has been dedicated to creating and presenting original and innovative theatrical works in collaboration with local theater artists. For many of its world premieres, Radial commissions a playwright (or a group of playwrights) to create a new play with specific actors in mind, and then develops the work with all participants working together as equal partners. Other productions are based on new or existing scripts.

Past world premieres include Karaoke Suicide is Painless by Celene Ramadan, 99 Layoffs by Vincent Delaney, Beating Up Bachman by Wayne Rawley, Aisle 9 and Profile conceived by Aimée Bruneau, and two themed anthologies of short commissioned scripts, Cell Phone Waiting Lot and The Pandemic Plays. Other past productions include George Orwell's 1984 adapted by Michael Gene Sullivan, Hostages by Yussef El Gundi, and An Oak Tree by Tim Crouch. In 2015, Radial Theater Project created Locally Grown, a festival of new works by local theater artists, that included the first full-length version of Sara Porkalob's Dragon Lady.
