Synopsis

“Sharp comedy and a serious purpose are splendidly combined in CLOUD NINE, Caryl Churchill’s provocative and amusing study of sexual politics… It unlocks the imagination, liberates the mind, and leaves you weak with laughter” – Time Out


CLOUD NINE is about relationships - between women and men, men and men, women and women. It is about sex, work, mothers, Africa, power, children, grandmothers, politics, money, Queen Victoria and Sex.


Caryl Churchill has been hailed as “a dramatist who must be surely be amongst the best half-dozen now writing … a playwright of genuine audacity and assurance, able to use her considerable wit and intelligence in ways at once unusual, resonant and dramatically riveting” – Bernanrd Nightingale


CLOUD NINE was first staged by Joint Stock and premiered in London at the Royal Court Theatre, in 1979, revived the following year and opened a two-year run in New York in 1981. It has since been staged all over the world.


Amazon.com Review
Reading the script for Caryl Churchill's 1979 play about sex and love is a special workout for the imagination. First, she asks you to imagine characters whose sexual identities and alliances shift constantly. Then she asks you to imagine that most of the characters make an impossible leap in time, from colonial Africa in the Victorian age to contemporary Britain. Lastly, she asks you to imagine some of the male characters played by women and some female characters played by men. Churchill likes to get things good and mixed up so all the audience's preconceptions about gender, romance, and "lifestyle" are scrambled, neutralized, and possibly even rebuilt. The title refers to the state of orgasmic and emotional bliss that everyone in this play seems to be striving for so desperately.
