The search for identity, whether internal or external, is a search for the truth about oneself. In Eclipsed, we get to witness five women in incredible circumstances go on this journey, each making very different discoveries over the course of the play which ultimately either unite or divide them.
The directors were interested in the idea of cultural exchange through incomplete ideas. I supported this concept and their statement by incorporating both traditional Liberian dress and cast off western style clothes. There was an additional idea of disorientation of time which I supported by having the costumes change based not off day changes but through character arch.
