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.

Critics’ Reviews

Lupita Nyong'o is radiant in this inspiring, urgently powerful tale of endurance.

Review by Adam Feldman from Time Out New York

A riveting, superbly acted production. Lupita Nyong'o's tremendously accomplished performance cuts to the bone. This moving play flickers with light, humanity and hope.

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
