Cloud 9


Nearly four decades after its startling debut, Cloud 9’s audacious, playful take on sexual politics resonates anew with its prescient exploration of power and perception. The repression of colonial Africa and the liberation of late-1970s London intersect in Caryl Churchill’s revolutionary masterwork. Bending time, gender, and genre, this nimble modern classic embraces the confusion and complication of identity: What forces define who we are—and at what cost?
