MainStage Production, Fall 2018: Eclipsed


By Danai Gurira

November 2-3 and 8-10 @ 8 pm
November 4 & 11 @ 2 pm
The Moore Theater

A Theater Department MainStage Production
Tickets available at the HOP Box Office

This gripping play unearths the wreckage of war and celebrates the women who navigate and survive the most hostile of circumstances. Their lives set on a nightmarish detour by civil war, the captive wives of a Liberian rebel officer form a hardscrabble sisterhood, drawing on their reserves of defiance, wit, and compassion to ask the question: when the fog of battle lifts, could a different destiny emerge? A chilling, humanizing, and surprisingly funny portrait of survival, transformation, and renewal.
