Lupita Nyong'o to Make New York Stage Debut in Danai Gurira's 'Eclipsed'

Lupita Nyong’o will be making her New York stage debut off-Broadway in the Public Theater’s new drama Eclipsed, written by The Walking Dead actress Danai Gurira.

Danai Gurira has written a brilliant play, ripped from the headlines, that looks at the terrible conflicts in post-colonial Africa with an eye that is both incisive and deeply compassionate,” Artistic Director Oskar Eustis said in a statement. “A feminist reading of the Liberian Civil War, a war that was ended by women, Eclipsed is both heart-breaking and profoundly life-affirming. We are delighted to welcome the extraordinary Lupita Nyong’o to The Public in this vitally important play.”

The show is set to begin on September 29 and run through November 8.
