ECLIPSED Debuts In Las Vegas At The Smith Center For The Performing Arts
"ECLIPSED," the colorful and fiery drama written by Danai Gurira (of The Walking Dead) & presented by Broadway in the H.O.O.D, settles in at the Troesh Theatre at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts for four intimate, powerful and captivating performances taking place November 2-4, 2018.
Danai Gurira's gripping drama documents the story of five extraordinary women brought together by upheaval in their homeland of Liberia in 2003 and near the end of the Second Liberian Civil War. 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.
Tony-nominated ECLIPSED tells the story of survival, hope, humor and resilience. It offers a chilling, humanizing and surprisingly funny portrait of transformation and renewal. With wit, compassion, and defiance, this gripping play unearths the wreckage of war and celebrates the women who navigate finding and testing their own strength.
