About the Ticket Supplier: Eclipse Theatre CompanyEclipse Theatre Company chooses one playwright per season and focuses on the works of that playwright only. Through this total immersion in a specific playwright's world, the ensemble gains a thorough understanding of that playwright and the circumstances of his/her writing in order to bring a more concentrated and literate representation of that playwright to the audience.
Playwrights who have written more than three plays are eligible for consideration, as well as playwrights who have shown a definite range of growth throughout their careers. On deciding which plays to perform, a great factor is the challenge that the piece presents to the ensemble and its audience.
Since the inception of the one playwright-one season mission in 1997, playwrights that have been featured with Eclipse include French Playwright Jean Cocteau; Legendary American Playwrights Tennessee Williams, Lillian Hellman and Neil Simon, New York Playwrights Romulus Linney and John Guare, and Chicago native Keith Reddin.
