Cloud Nine Paperback
Part of the Acting Edition S. series
Written for Joint Stock, this theatre company's workshop for the play was "sexual politics," thus giving Caryl Churchill the idea for her parallel between colonial and sexual oppression.
Act I takes place in Victorian Africa, whilst Act II is set in modern London.
Much interplay is made of gender and colour: for example, Clive, the white settler, has a black servant, Joshua, who is played by a white because he wants to be what the whites want him to be.
Hilarious and thought-provoking.
