There is no better time than now when women of all ages and colors are grappling with re-imagined, psycho-social positioning and unbounded perspectives of capability. We invite you to witness this powerful limited engagement performance while latching onto the #400girls Project.
Your ticket purchase will automatically enable our outreach to 400 young women, ages 14 -21, to experience and learn that they, too, can be the “hero in their own story”.
Additionally, please consider a donation. No amount is too small. Thanks!

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
