Eclipsed

Online

Our February 2020 performance online of Eclipsed by Patricia Burke Brogan. This is an award winning play set in a Magdalene laundry during the 1960’s. It is one of the first plays to tell the story of the Magdalene laundries and was inspired by Patricia’s own experience as a young novitiate. Her play highlights the plight of four women who struggle to bear the austerity of their existence and desire to break the shackles of this landmark of societal repression.
