July 27 - August 6, 2018 @ THEATERLAB
Set in British Colonial Africa and an urban park 100 years later, Cloud 9 follows one seemingly perfect nuclear family. When a handsome explorer arrives on their African estate, codes of behavior break down as secret histories and hidden desires are revealed. As lines of propriety, social class, and gender vanish, the family struggles to navigate a terrain where anything is possible. Through 137 years, ten relationships, four songs and two wildly contrasting acts, Cloud 9 is a comedic and moving exploration of what it means to come of age in a rapidly changing and sexually politicized world.
Directed by Cameron King
