Cloud Nine

Cloud NineT591950999
Cloud Nine was originally written from a series of workshops exploring sexuality, with Joint Stock in 1978. Often hilarious and extremely poignant, Cloud Nine draws a parallel between colonial and sexual oppression. Set in both Victorian Africa and 1970's London, the play shows how changing sexual behaviours have emerged and, with the onset of a more liberated society, suggests that new as yet undiscovered territories lie ahead. The characters are both joyful and mournful, the dialogue richly comic but painfully acute. The play contains adult themes and language.
Author Caryl Churchill

Production details

Stage Managed by Mark Jones. The old theatrical tradition of cross-gender/cross-cultural casting is deliberately employed (a male actor plays a woman, a white actor plays a black character) by Churchill in an attempt to re-examine sexual and social stereotypes.
