Amazon.com description: Product Description:
“Sharp comedy and a serious purpose are splendidly combined in Cloud 9, Caryl Churchill’s provocative and amusing study of sexual politics… It unlocks the imagination, liberates the mind, and leaves you weak with laughter.” –Time Out

“Audacious and savagely funny. Mesmerizing.” –Washington Post

Cloud 9 is about relationships - between women and men, men and men, women and women. It is about sex, work, mothers, Africa, power, children, grandmothers, politics, money, Queen Victoria and Sex. Cloud 9 premiered in London at the Royal Court Theatre in 1979, then was revived for a two-year run in New York City (1981). It has since been staged all over the world.

Caryl Churchill has written for the stage, television and radio. A renowned and prolific playwright, her plays include Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Far Away, Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?, Bliss, Love and Information, Mad Forest and A Number. In 2002, she received the Obie Lifetime Achievement Award and 2010, she was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.
