The Market Theatre presents Meet Me at Dawn with Pamela Nomvete and Natasha Sutherland, both firm favourites of TV audiences.
The play, written by British playwright Zinnie Harris, will be directed by Lesedi Job, the Sophie Mgcina Best Emerging Voice 2015 recipient. It premiered in the Traverse Theatre at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2017.
Inspired by Orpheus’s desperate reclamation of his wife Eurydice from the underworld, Meet Me at Dawn, unflinchingly honest and tenderly lyrical, 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.
Lesedi Job made her directorial debut with When Swallows Cry at the Market Theatre in 2017. Meet Me at Dawn is supported by an all-women design and production team headed by Hailey Kingston in her role as production manager and set designer. Lighting designer Nomvula Molepo, who has lit more than 100 productions, award-winning costume designer Karabo Legoabe-Mtshali and stage managers Motlalepula Makhate and Malebo Mokoto will support Lesedi Job’s vision to make Meet Me at Dawn another riveting and emotional rollercoaster that will leave audiences gasping for their loved ones.
Meet Me at Dawn will run at the Market Theatre from Friday 16 March to Sunday 15 April 2018.
