Further Than The Furthest Thing is a beautifully drawn story evoking the sadness and beauty of a civilisation in crisis. Further Than The Furthest Thing premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in August, 2000.

In this first collection by Zinnie Harris, Further than the Furthest Thing evokes the fragility of an island community as their way of life is threatened and they must determine their future, while Midwinter opens as a woman steals a dead horse to feed to a child. How To Hold Your Breath tells the story of a woman who sleeps with the devil and defends her belief in love, even as her world collapses around her, and Meet Me at Dawn offers a compelling, allegorical love story that explores the desolating effects of grief. With an introduction by director Dominic Hill. Further than the Furthest Thing 'Already has the status of a modern classic.' Lyn Gardner, Guardian 'Arguably the greatest tragedy in the Scottish theatrical canon' Mark Brown, Telegraph Midwinter 'There is no mistaking her talent' Observer 'A stunning metaphor for our time' Herald How to Hold Your Breath 'Harris's writing is not only wonderfully imaginative, but also beautifully light.' Tribune 'Dizzyingly bold . . . pressingly topical and admirably ambitious' Financial Times Meet Me at Dawn 'A twenty-first-century classic' Scotsman 'Lyrical, raw and hazy' Sunday Times

Celine McAnespie, an employee of the Costly Coffee global empire is dragged off to a weekend training course just days after she's started her new job. Her Eco-warrior boyfriend Jarvis is furious with her for taking the job, partly because he's about to spend the weekend at the company's global headquarters demonstrating against them. Weaving together sex, intrigue, greed and protest, Love Freaks asks whether the course of true love can survive the ravages of transnational business interests.

The Vaughans are all set to enjoy Christmas. Thomas has been promoted and Nora is delighted. Everything at last seems to be going right, until a visitor arrives uninvited and causes them to question just how perfect their marriage is. Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House caused outrage both in its style and subject matter when first staged in 1879. Zinnie Harris's retelling is played against the backdrop of British politics at the turn of the last century - to revel a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule. Zinnie Harris's version of A Doll's House premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in May 2009.
