Arts Foundation fellows Zinnie Harris at the Edinburgh International Festival

  • Zinnie Harris will be busy this summer with three works set to be in the Edinburgh International Festival which runs from August 4-28th. They include “Oresteia: This Restless House,” a modern take on Aeschylus’ classic Greek tragedy about perhaps the most dysfunctional family of all. This was premiered at the Citizens Theater in Glasgow in 2016. She will also be presenting a new version of Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros,” to be presented with DOT Theater of Istanbul and performed by a cast of actors from Scotland and Turkey, and “Meet Me at Dawn,” a fable inspired by the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, to be directed by Orla O’Loughlin, the artistic director of Edinburgh’s Traverse Theater.
