Set in 1963, Eclipsed captures a unique time in history when conservative ideals are on the cusp of falling away as a new generation defines its morals and values – trapped between the old and the new are the women and babies in the story. Based on the real-life hardships and tragedies of Magdalene laundries run by the Roman Catholic Church to correct the behaviors of “fallen women”, Eclipsed tells a story of suffering as ideals and meet reality. Appropriately, our society finds itself in a similar place today as legislation affecting reproductive rights and childcare are priority news stories. This parity makes lessons and questions offered up in the play the perfect ideas to reflect upon for modern audiences. Sure to strike a chord, this play is a great closing to our fall 2021 theatre season as its lessons will leave all audience members with something to be grateful for as we depart campus for the holiday break.
Eclipsed will run Friday, December 10th – Tuesday, December 14th in the Lupin Theatre located in the Dixon Performing Arts Center Annex on Tulane University campus. Performances will be at 7:30pm with an additional matinee performance on Saturday, December 11th at 2pm. Tickets for this performance will go on sale on Monday, November 15th, 2021.
