A play that looks at three generations of men struggling with their dreams and their journeys, is an intimate look at personal stories affected by historical events.

First staged to critical acclaim as a short play by Scotland’s 7:84 Theatre at Traverse Theatre, Eclipse was developed into a full-length production and presented in Singapore as a Fringe Highlight of the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival in 2008.

“Absorbingly told by Umar Ahmed, Eclipse suggests that ancestral memory is never as meaningful as the allegiances of everyday life.”
— The Guardian“(Playwright Haresh Sharma) has demonstrated a deftness and maturity in scriptwriting, a deeper inquiry into life and humanity, as well as an evident progress in terms of his creations.”
