Cloud Nine

By CARYL CHURCHILL
Directed by JAMES MACDONALD

Linda Gross Theater

September 16 – November 1, 2015


Atlantic welcomes legendary British playwright Caryl Churchill (Mad Forest, Top Girls) for this revival helmed by acclaimed director James Macdonald (A Number, Cock).

More Info

Set in colonial Africa and 1979 London, this landmark play is about power, politics, family, Queen Victoria and sex. A timeless and bitingly funny modern classic, Cloud Nine has not been seen in a major New York production since 1981, when it ran for over two years.

Reviews

New York Times Critics' Pick logo

 

“A glorious revival! Ms. Churchill is one of the wisest and bravest playwrights on the planet! James Macdonald’s pheromone-fresh production features a deliciously mutable cast who feel utterly, emotionally in the moment! This compassionate, tough-loving production finds the ecstasy, tragedy, and exhilarating madness of what it means to be part of this eternal ball of confusion.”

The New York Times

“Valiant and meaningful! Superbly acted! As a cast, their chemistry and potential is undeniable! What I’m saying is go!

The Huffington Post

 

“A superb revival that has only grown fuller, meatier, sadder, funnier, sexier, and more provocative! An excellent cast will haunt me as long as the original.”

New York Magazine

 

“All perfect! Impeccably cast and directed! Nothing compares to the head-spinning, giddy thrills and vertiginous goings-on in Churchill’s still-wonderfulCloud Nine ! Elusive, important, and seriously fun!”
