CLOUD 9 by Caryl Churchill (Top Girls) is an audacious, award-winning play that wraps gender-bending characters and outrageous portrayals of sexuality in thought-provoking satire. Political and sexual oppression are explored in a time-twisted structure: 100 years pass between acts set in British colonial Africa and modern London, with recurring characters aging a mere 25 years. The exhilarating world of CLOUD 9, where age, gender, race and sexuality are defined and re-defined features Ann-Marie Macdonald, Ben Carlson, Megan Follows, Yanna MacIntosh, Evan Buliung, David Jansen and Blair Williams and is directed by Alisa Palmer (Dora Mavor Moore Award for Top Girls).
Sexual content, strong language, gunshots, smoking (non-tobacco), brilliant dialogue, intense comedy, compelling drama, unforgettable characters - in short, a contemporary masterpiece!
