Eclipsed by Patricia Burke Brogan 

Synopsis

Framed by a present-day prologue and epilogue, the play is set in 1963 in a convent laundry at St. Paul's Home for Penitent Women in Killmacha, Ireland.

'Eclipsed' explores the practice of making pregnant and unwed Irish mothers work as 'penitents' in church-run laundries.

Reviews

'Mothers for a moment, then cloistered forever. ... powerful and thought-provoking.' The New York Times

'A sterling ensemble achievement, alternately scalding and magical in its theatricality.' Los Angeles Times

'Despite a seemingly bleak and dark subject matter, the play is filled with humour and celebration ... and the script is well-crafted and subtly poetic. This is a fine piece of work and deserves a large audience.' Seattle Fringe Review Rag
