Eclipsed - The Magdalene Laundries
by Patricia Burke Brogan
directed by Bridget Leak
Based on true events, “Eclipsed” introduces eight women imprisoned in a religious asylum; some due to misguided faith and blind obedience, and others, abandoned by society, were held against their will. These “fallen women,” forced into slave labor, find themselves not only fighting for freedom, but for survival. Patricia Burke’s play is the first to tell the story of the Magdalene Laundries. Over 30,000 girls passed through these institutions, and barely anyone knows their stories. IVP believes it’s time everyone did.
