Eclipsed

Danai Gurira

 

Synopsis

Despite an ongoing war, being held captive by a warlord in Liberia, and little hope of change, four women band together and find strength despite their circumstances. This is the revised edition of the enthralling play that made history as the first ever Broadway production written by, directed by, and entirely cast with black women.

Review

The playwright’s argument is that women may be politically powerless, but they have other assets — like moral strength, dignity, and compassion — to draw upon in order to survive man-made wars without giving up their own humanity. - Variety
