Mingling bawdy farce with brutal realism, Caryl Churchill brilliantly exposes the power structures which delimit sexuality and the social conventions which dictate gender. As harsh as it is hysterical, Cloud Nine is a tour-de-force of partner-swapping and gender-bending which deftly guides its audience from the steamy jungles of Colonial Africa to the lamp-lit cruising parks of modern London. With its explicit dialogue and sexual themes, it is intended for a mature and open-minded audience.
