Eclipsed

April 23, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - May 16, 2015 @ 6:30 PM

| £10 - £20
eclipsed

Written by Danai Gurira; Directed by Caroline Byrne,

It’s best to work with the system, and right now -the system is war.

2003, civil war is raging in Liberia. At a rebel army base four young women are doing their best to survive the conditions of the war . Yet sometimes, the greatest threat comes not from the enemy’s guns, but from the brutality of those on your own side. With the arrival of a new girl, who can read, and an old one, who can kill, how might this transform the future of this hard-bitten sisterhood?

Funny, compassionate and daring, Eclipsed is as the Washington Post puts it, “a surprisingly vivacious portrait of helplessness”. 

Eclipsed is part of the Freedom Burning Season: when the revolution is over, when the smoke clears, when the dust settles – what then? Freedom Burning – a season of two shows that look at how human beings try to achieve liberty.
