Hi Goodreads I ve never published a review on here before so my apologies if this is a bit roughFor those who don t know Danai Gurira is an actress with such credits as The Walking Dead and Black Panther but she s also a published playwright Pretty awesome I thinkAnyway to my mind a star rating is hard and almost meaningless to assign to a play of any kind Plays are meant to be performed andor viewed and it s hard to judge on the script alone Some playwrights write stage direction so thoroughly and descriptively that it feels traditionally literary like say Eugene O Neill in Long Day s Journey into Night another play I recently finished Danai Gurira s directions though are appropriate but not elaborate Eclipsed is a powerful story about women surviving in a world where women are property than human Prior to reading this my knowledge with Liberia s political history was virtually non existent Gurira s story is situated at the end of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 This bloody four and a half year conflict is the bedrock of the play s storyline though the play doesn t spend time explaining war s ins and outs The action of the war is entirely off stage this is really a play about women not a play about war Eclipsed is focused on five characters Helena and Bessie are both the concubinal wives of a commanding officer of a rebel militia living within the rebel army camp Both were kidnapped as a part of the spoils of war and take turns having sex with the commander at his will Helena is wife 1 and has attained some authority because of that status though it may be fading Helena is the wife who still maintains some hope for life beyond the war Bessie wife 3 is pregnant but unable to imagine life beyond the war When the play opens these two women are helping to care for a young new abductee a bright girl with some education behind her The new wife only ever referred to as The Girl shortly becomes a part of the commanding officer s rotation Shortly after the Girl s arrival wife 2 Maima returns to the camp from battle Maima s relationship with Helena and Bessie is tense and complicated Maima has found strength and purpose in the war as a soldier unsettling Bessie and Helena Soon Maima begins to try to court the Girl to join her in battle leaving the Girl torn between her potential options Meanwhile another woman named Rita arrives in the camp Rita works for the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace a real organization that was founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee and comes to try and establish peace and offer hope to women like the wives view spoilerThe play s narrative ultimately brings each of the five in conflict with one another as they try to determine how to respond to the war and to each other hide spoiler Thomas Dekker: mijn gevecht published a review on here before so my apologies if this is a bit roughFor those who don t know Danai Gurira is an actress with such credits as The Walking Dead and Black Panther but she s also a Menolak Tumbang Narasi Perempuan Melawan Pemiskinan published The More of Less playwright Pretty awesome I thinkAnyway to my mind a star rating is hard and almost meaningless to assign to a Sunshine Pleasure with Him play of any kind Plays are meant to be Stengor the Crab Monster performed andor viewed and it s hard to judge on the script alone Some Riddle of the Ruby Ring Baker Family Adventures #3 playwrights write stage direction so thoroughly and descriptively that it feels traditionally literary like say Eugene O Neill in Long Day s Journey into Night another Archeology play I recently finished Danai Gurira s directions though are appropriate but not elaborate Eclipsed is a A collection of stories by Alexandre Dumas powerful story about women surviving in a world where women are Exercise Physiology Human Bioenergetics and Its Applications with PowerWeb property than human Prior to reading this my knowledge with Liberia s Timeline of Kings ueensFrom Charlemagne to Elizabeth II political history was virtually non existent Gurira s story is situated at the end of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 This bloody four and a half year conflict is the bedrock of the Halt mich fest in deinen Armen Kuschelrock play s storyline though the Trinta Anos de Poesia play doesn t spend time explaining war s ins and outs The action of the war is entirely off stage this is really a Healing the Unimaginable play about women not a L'agenda VDM 2018-2019 play about war Eclipsed is focused on five characters Helena and Bessie are both the concubinal wives of a commanding officer of a rebel militia living within the rebel army camp Both were kidnapped as a Unique(s) .

summary Eclipsed 109 Winner of the NAACP Helen Hayes and Best New Play awards Eclipsed is a funny compassionate and daring new wo. A wonderful play written in dialect about five women during the fight for Liberian Independence I was impressed with the deep character development in only 80 pages Like any play I think this would be better to see performed but I liked it nonetheless I laughed as they were trying to figure out the Clinton book and was very sad at the end I think this would be an excellent addition to an English class discussion Cuentos Peruanos play written in dialect about five women during the fight for Liberian Independence I was impressed with the deep character development in only 80 Code Und Material pages Like any Schaum's Easy Outline of Italian Schaumªs Easy Outlines Series play I think this would be better to see Drill Ground Instructor performed but I liked it nonetheless I laughed as they were trying to figure out the Clinton book and was very sad at the end I think this would be an excellent addition to an English class discussion

summary Eclipsed 109 Yet sometimes the greatest threat comes not from the enemy but from the brutality of those on your own side. 35 I m not sure about it Truth be told I know absolutely nothing about the Second Liberian Civil War and was instead drawn to this play because I know the playwright from her role on The Walking Dead and the fact that this play was the first to have a Broadway premiere with an all black and female cast and creative teamThis play is written in Liberian English but I didn t have any trouble understanding the words on the page the playwright s notes in the back of this edition also detail the lengths the creative team went to in order to ensure all audiences could understand this dialect when spoken as well Eclipsed is very character driven and as a reader I prefer plot driven narratives that happen to have well developed characters who have character arcs that go along with the plot Eclipsed is about the stories of these women fighting for survival and their interpersonal relationships and histories are the main focus of the play This play didn t resonate with me as much as I thought it might maybe because I m unfamiliar with the conflict that looms over this play I still liked it but it didn t blow me away
