Cloud Nine, Caryl Churchill
Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts Ltd (3 yr. Acting)
Performances take place at the Avondale Theatre, SW9 9PH
a story about hypocritical people living in 1880s Africa and 1979 London. The story confronts colonial and sexual repression with a gender-bend cast of characters who traverse 100 years while only aging 25. Act I takes place in Victorian Africa, while Act II is set in modern London. Much interplay is made of gender and color: 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. Where Act 1 ends with a parody of the traditional marriage, Act 2 is more fluid: both the characters and the play’s structure open up to new possibilities.
