Abstract

‘Cloud 9’ is a scandalously funny and thought-provoking play that explores the knotted realities of relationships across gender, sex, and time. The play begins in British colonial Africa during the Victorian era and ends in London a century later, but the characters have only aged 25 years. Along the way, ‘Cloud 9’ uses controversial portrayals of sexuality and obscene language, as well as an audacious sense of humour, to establish a parallel between colonial and sexual oppression.
