About Eclipse

A National Portfolio Funded Organisation with Arts Council England, Eclipse Theatre is the leading Black-led touring company in the UK, at the forefront of delivering diverse programming in theatre, film and radio.

One of our current missions is to create new work using the insights and experiences of Black British people of African and Caribbean backgrounds and those of us who are also marginalised for our race. Sharing enriching, thought-provoking stories that reflect our nation, we work hard to meet our audiences where they are.
