Cloud Nine

by Caryl Churchill

directed by June Rowe

Set both in the damnable heat of Victorian Africa where the sweltering members of the raj grapple heroically with their native uprisings and present day post-colonial London.'Cloud 9' is an almost indecently hilarious play. Churchill makes brilliant use of cross and multiple casting to draw unignorable parallels between imperial and sexual oppression.
