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.

The Two 'Walking Dead' Series Will Not Intersect... Yet

It was revealed during the panel for the spin-off series that there are no plans right now to have the two series intersect.

“I think [Walking Dead showrunner] Scott Gimple would kill me if I ever pitched that idea,” showrunner Dave Erickson said (via EW). “It would be geographically quite complicated. There are no plans right now to conflate the two stories, as interesting as that might be.”
