Cloud 9

Caryl Churchill’s Cloud Nine is a contemporary examination of gender roles and sexual politics through the lens of ironic farce. In Victorian era Africa, stiff-lipped Clive tries to keep everything under control – until dashing explorer Harry arrives, and tensions begin to grow between the ‘natives’ and the British administration, just as sexual tensions begin to grow amongst Clive’s compatriots. As the exploits of the characters mount, the play reaches a dramatic denouement and we fast forward to contemporary London, though the characters age only 25 years. Here, women rule the show: there are debates on leaving “male feminist” husbands [...] 27th–30th Jun

Collaborators

Moscow, 1938. A dangerous place to have a sense of humour; even more so a sense of freedom. Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he’s offered a poisoned chalice: a commission to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Inspired by historical fact, Collaborators embarks on a surreal journey into the fevered imagination of the writer as he loses himself in a macabre and disturbingly funny relationship with the omnipotent subject of his drama. 21st–24th Jun
