What is your version of being on Cloud Nine and how difficult is it to get to in this day and age?

This enduring masterwork by Caryl Churchill resonates today with its exploration of gender, race and colonisation. Cloud Nine comedically depicts the heavy burden of colonisation for both the colonised and the colonisers, in a carnivalesque pastiche of stereotypes and cliches about the British Empire.

Act One, sent in colonial Africa, parodies conventional theatre comedies and satirizes Victorian society and colonialism.

Act Two is set 100 years later in 1979 London, but it is located only twenty-five years later for the characters of the play. It portrays a version of these colonised people where some previous conventions have been loosened but struggles still remain.
