19-28 July @ The State Theatre Centre of WA ·
Presented by: WA Youth Theatre Company ·

What is your version of being on CLOUD NINE and how difficult is it to get to in this day and age? This enduring masterwork by Caryl Churchill resonates today with its exploration of gender, race and colonisation. CLOUD NINE comedically depicts the heavy burden of colonisation for both the colonised and the colonisers, in a carnivalesque pastiche of stereotypes and clichés about the British Empire. Act One, set in colonial Africa, parodies conventional theatre comedies and satirizes Victorian society and colonialism. Act Two is set 100 years later in 1979 London, portraying a version of the same characters only twenty-five years later, exploring some loosened conventions and equally charged tensions.
