Set in the midst of the Second Liberian Civil War, Danai Gurira’s play follows the captive 'wives' of a Commanding Officer in the rebel army. A teen girl has recently arrived and the wives protect and care for her in the dilapidated, one-bedroom shack the women share. Just as the new girl begins to adjust to life at the compound, their fragile sisterhood is thrown off balance when a wife turned soldier returns from the battlefield. The Girl must choose whether to stay with the women who have done so much for her, or to join the freedom fighter and chart her own destiny as a soldier. With deep emotional strength, brutal honesty, and yes, humor, the women of Eclipsed fight to do something truly extraordinary: survive.
