Regional Premiere

ECLIPSED

By Danai Gurira

Directed by Malika Oyetimein

Performances: 7:30 PM (Sundays 3:00 PM)

Loyola University, Marquette Theatre

6363 St. Charles Avenue

New Orleans, LA 70118


Their lives set on a nightmarish detour by the Liberian Civil War, five women form a tenuous sisterhood. As they navigate the dangers of captivity and imagine what the future could hold, the arrival of a new girl threatens to upend their delicately balanced community. Emotionally searing and unexpectedly funny, ECLIPSED explores the resilience of survivors and celebrates the resourcefulness of women facing extraordinary circumstances.

Free parking is available for Southern Rep performances on the Loyola campus in the West Road garage. Click here for more information about the venue. Box office opens on site one hour prior to performances, outside Marquette Theatre on the second floor of Marquette Hall.
