2016 Season

Cloud 9

March 3 – April 24, 2016

Written by: Caryl Churchill
Directed by: Casey Stangl

Sex and Gender. Race and Power. Politics and Family. Plus Queen Victoria! Caryl Churchill’s biting satire boldly tackles them all. Set in both British Colonial Africa and 1970s London, Cloud 9 is an outrageously funny, thought-provoking look at the rigid boxes society puts us in — and what it takes to break free.
