Fred Meller Designs and Danny Krass Sound Designs MEET ME AT DAWN
MEET ME AT DAWN, by Zinnie Harris, is Designed by Fred Meller and has Sound Design by Danny Krass. It is on at the Traverse (as part of EIF) until the end of August.
The Stage ★★★★
“driving along with power”
The Scotsman ★★★★
“they are supported every inch of the way by Fred Meller’s understated island design…and Danny Krass’s impeccable soundscape”
“a 21st century classic full of its own passionate poetry, its own love, and its own despair”
The Herald Scotland ★★★★
“Somewhere in this bittersweet elegy to things not quite passed, there is the holding on, then holding on some more”
“what is most touching is not the epic scope but the mundane details. The tap that Robyn watched overflow as she her mother took a call from the hospital about Helen is a focus of the set (designed by Fred Meller), which looks like the ruined hull of a ship”
“Meet Me at Dawn forces you to slow down, to be patient, to wait”
