Eclipsed Preview

Mon, Sep 9, 2019 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205

Corrib Theatre will give a sneak preview of their upcoming play Eclipsed by Patricia Burke Brogan, which plays September 20–October 13, 2019 at New Expressive Works (corribtheatre.org)

In a Magdalene Laundry, where the nuns regard them as mindless vessels of evil and their infants are forcibly put up for adoption, a group of young unwed Irish mothers struggle, resist, and strive to overcome the onerous conditions imposed on them. Based on true accounts, and written by an ex-nun who worked there, it’s a story of both pain and hope.

Artistic Director Gemma Whelan will introduce the play, actors will read a short scene, and Gemma and the actors and special guest Cindy Williams Gutiérrez will discuss issues raised by the play and invite questions and comments from the audience.
