Set in 2003, Eclipsed unearths the wreckage of Liberia’s vicious civil war and celebrates women who navigate the most brutal of circumstances. The "wives" of a rebel commanding officer form a community in a hostile warzone. Their world is transformed by the arrival of two newcomers and the unceremonious return of a former "wife" turned rebel soldier. Each woman finds her own means of survival, but at what cost?

Eclipsed, a new play by Danai Gurira, the OBIE Award-winning co-author of In the Continuum, is a chilling, humanizing, and surprisingly funny portrait of transformation and renewal, directed by Liesl Tommy (Angela’s Mix Tape and The Good Negro).
