2008-2009 Season: February 26 - March 8
By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Doug Rosson
A hilarious look at racial, sexual, and personal repression, Caryl Churchill’s Cloud Nine follows the awakenings of a Victorian family from Africa in 1880 all the way to London, England in 1980. One hundred years have gone by, but how much have we, or society, truly advanced? Cross-cast over gender and racial lines, the characters strive to find true happiness in a changing world by finding themselves. A truly international hit, Cloud Nine is one of the most significant plays of the last quarter of the 20th century.
