A play about the women of the Magdalene Laundries in Ireland. This statue commemorates their struggle.

Eclipsed is a powerful and moving award-winning play with dozens of productions around the world. Set
in a Magdalene laundry in the 1960s, the all woman play documents the Irish Catholic church and their
practice of incarcerating pregnant and unwed Irish mothers in church-run laundries making them work
as penitents. If you saw the film Philomena, you have seen the story of one Magdalene. Although a
drama, the play is filled with moments of humor as well song.

Box office opens 45 minutes before performances
