Eclipsed is based on the lives of five women in war-torn Liberia, which is currently running off-Broadway in New York.

Speaking on why she created the play, the 37-year-old actress revealed ,"I was enthralled by an image I saw in the New York Times in 2003 of women in the Liberian war right when it was at its climax,' she said. 'There were some women rebel fighters who were getting attention in the Western press because no one had ever seen anything like this.

I was raised in Africa and I had never seen anything like it, women with AK-47s, dressed very hip and looking formidable. I was keen to one day pursue that story and put it on the stage".

The actress and playwright was born in Iowa in the US but was raised in Zimbabwe from the age of five, when her parents moved back there after the country gained its independence.
