"Saw it at the [2017] Atlanta Black Theatre Festival.... EXCELLENT PRODUCTION!" - Anthony Mapp

The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival presents ABTF Encore! "Best of the Fest".

ECLIPSED by Danai Gurira (Black Panther and Walking Dead) made history as the first play with an all-black, female creative cast and team to premiere on Broadway.  

We're bringing back this six time, Tony Award-nominated drama by Danai Gurira for ABTF Encore!  This stirring tale of hope and human resilience is delivered with timely humor by a stellar cast from the Star Center Theatre Co. It is directed by the multiple award winning artist, Rhonda Wilson!

SYNOPSIS: Eclipsed takes place in the country of Liberia in 2003 in a bullet ridden-one room shack. It's the story of five extraordinary women brought together by the upheaval of civil war. Four are held captive as "wives" of a rebel commanding officer, while the fifth works to free them.  With deep emotional strength, brutal honesty, and a surprising amount of humor, the women of Eclipsed fight to do something truly extraordinary: survive. 

"I saw it on Broadway and the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival. This play is OUTSTANDING!"    ~C. Riley
