Eclipsed at the Yale Rep
Join YLW for a trip to the Yale Rep to see a fabulous and courageous new play, Eclipsed on Wednesday, November 4th at 6pm. Linda Greenhouse and Prof. Jean Koh Peters will be joining us for the play and dinner beforehand. Set in 2003, Eclipsed unearths the wreckage of Liberia’s vicious civil war and celebrates women who navigate the most brutal of circumstances. The "wives" of a rebel commanding officer form a community in a hostile warzone. Their world is transformed by the arrival of two newcomers and the unceremonious return of a former "wife" turned rebel soldier. Each woman finds her own means of survival, but at what cost? Tickets are $10 for Yale students. http://www.yalerep.org/on_stage/2009-10/eclipsed.html.
