Presented by dlr Mill Theatre in February 2020, Eclipsed by Patricia Burke Brogan is an award winning play set in a Magdalene laundry during the 1960’s It is one of the first plays to tell the story of the Magdalene laundries and was inspired by Patricia’s own experience as a young novitiate. Her play highlights the plight of four women who struggle to bear the austerity of their existence and desire to break the shackles of this landmark of societal repression. This is a poignant, funny, moving and sad play. We are starkly reminded of the brutal intolerance of ‘female deviance’ in our country’s not so distant past while also being brought on a finely crafted journey of friendship, love, hope and survival.
