A comedy of manners that spans centuries, Cloud 9 is a smart, satirical look at gender politics and sexual oppression across the ages. Written in 1978, this modern classic offers witty social commentary, controversial casting requirements, and if that weren't enough, time-travel! Taking us from the corsets of colonial Africa to the sexual liberation of 1970's England, Churchill’s parody pokes fun at nearly every permutation of human sexuality, and reminds us why the playwright remains a feminist hero and icon today.
Please note that Cloud 9 explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence. Cloud 9 may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.
