“You can't separate f*cking and economics.” A race and gender-bending exploration of the struggle for sexual, political, and personal identity, Caryl Churchill’s Obie-award-winning Cloud 9 presents a subversive satire about British politics, class, and sexual mores. The first half of the play takes place on a British plantation in 19th century colonial Africa. The second half transports audiences to 20th century London. By splitting the drama in two, Churchill draws out distinctions and surprising redefinitions of deviance, liberation, revolution, and the power of sex. Be titillated, be horrified, but in any case, be mindful of pleasure and power while you rest on Cloud 9.
