  1. I think I would have found this powerful if I hadn t already seen read Lynn Nottage s Pulitzer winning Ruined , which covers similar territory I am sure this plays quite well as the reviews for the current Broadway production attest , but reading it, it just seemed rather pedestrian.


  2. 2017 Reading Challenge a novel set during wartimeThis play is set during the Liberian civil war between LURD and Charles Taylor It is an all female cast, Helena, Bessie, Maima, Rita and The Girl Each woman s story educates us on different aspects of the experience of war by women Helena is guarded but hopeful, Bessie seems devoid of any real knowledge of life outside of war, Maima finds strength in war, Rita desperately wants peace and The Girl is fractured between her desire to escape this life [...]


  3. I don t usually read plays but I wanted to read this one because of the brilliant, beautiful, and talented Danai Gurira I m interested in her causes and what she stands for in helping others I also didn t want to read anything too dark because I m trying to remain in a happy but I had to read Eclipsed Although this is a fictionalized account of this war, things like this happened with these young women continue to go on till this day Eclipsed was than what I thought it would be, about what I th [...]


  4. Very heavy, this narrative focuses on the true casualties of war in Liberia women All interactions with men are completely off stage but still completely present in action and dialogue When the war ends, each character makes her own decision about what to do next, and the final stage directions conclude the play on a high note of indecision, a move not many writers have the audacity to pull off The inconclusiveness works for Gurira here.


  5. A stunning play about Liberian women during the civil wars I was able to see it performed in NYC and was curious how the written text would compare to the powerful staging The text was equally powerful albeit less visceral Its stage directions are not heavy handed but just right A difficult play and a timely play as women girls continue to be dual casualties of war rape and death.


  6. This Tony nominated play very effectively illustrates a society in total war through the rarely seen lens of women those resigned to their fate, using it to their advantage, or becoming warriors themselves Gurira writes in Liberian patois, which makes the reading experience closer to the theater experience than many scripts on the page.


  7. An unbelievably shattering look at women in war, and what it means to survive which can mean very different things Please if you read this play read all the material that comes with it The author has included some exquisite details about the research and the characters An extraordinary piece of literature and theatre.


  8. Absolutely incredible A very human, genuine portrayal of Liberian women in the Liberian Civil War that is funny and tragic at the same time Amazing onstage or off I read the play after I saw it, but believe that it would ve had the same effect on me even if I d never seen it onstage.


  9. I love this book so much Captivating with perfect execution of themes and ideas through the characters.
