Hot Spot: The Public Theatre, NYC

Deets: Academy Award® winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) comes to The Public in the New York premiere of ECLIPSED – the stunning, deeply moving play by award-winning Zimbabwean-American Playwright/Actress, Danai Gurira (co-author of In the Continuum and Michonne on AMC's "The Walking Dead"). 

Amid the chaos of the Liberian Civil War, the captive wives of a rebel officer band together to form a fragile community – until the balance of their lives is upset by the arrival of a new girl. Drawing on reserves of wit and compassion, ECLIPSED reveals distinct women who must discover their own means of survival in this deeply felt portrait of women finding and testing their own strength in a hostile world of horrors not of their own making.

South African born Liesl Tommy (Appropriate and The Public’s The Good Negro) directs this magnificent story of survival and resilience.

Stephen Byrd, Alia Jones-Harvey, Paula Marie Black, Willette Klausner, and Michael Magers generously provided support for this production.
