Set first in 1880s colonial Africa and then in 1980s London, Cloud Nine sheds a comic light on gender politics as the colonial and sexual repression of Victorian England is set up against the Feminist and Gay movement that emerged during the years of the “Iron Lady,” Margaret Thatcher. Part farce, part dark comedy, Cloud Nine creates a world where men play women, women play men, adults play children, and somehow, it all makes very good and proper sense.
