Danai Gurira’s “Eclipsed” starring Lupita Nyong’o (her New York stage debut) is now in performances at the Public Theater in New York City, directed by Obie Award winner Liesl Tommy.


“Eclipsed” is set in 2003 near the end of the civil war in Liberia, and follows a group of women who are captives of rebels fighting the government.

In a statement, the Public Theater’s artistic director, Oskar Eustis, called the work a “feminist reading” of a conflict that is “both heart-breaking and profoundly life-affirming.”

Joining Nyong’o in the cast are Pascale Armand, Akosua Busia, Zainab Jah, and Saycon Sengbloh.

After 2 extensions (thanks to healthy ticket sales), the show now has a closing date set for November 29.
