Eclipse Theater Company's mission is one playwright, one season, one illuminating journey. Our mission lets us as a company and audience to journey thought the life of a playwright.
We also include a Playwright Scholar Series where we dive deeper into other plays that did not make the main stage. This allows us to see the depth a playwright can offer.
Eclipse was founded in 1992 with the mission updated to what it is now in 1997. As a company, we love getting to know playwrights and have been fortunate to meet and work with many, including: Terrence McNally, Lynn Nottage, Stephen Adly Guirgis, and Kia Corthon.
