CLOUD 9 - a comedy of multiple organisms

By Caryl Churchill Directed by Alisa Palmer

Starring Evan Buliung, Ben Carlson, Megan Follows, David Jansen, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Yanna McIntosh and Blair Williams

CLOUD 9 by Caryl Churchill (Top Girls) is an audacious, award-winning play that wraps gender-bending characters and outrageous portrayals of sexuality in thought-provoking satire. Political and sexual oppression are explored in a time-twisted structure: 100 years pass between acts set in British colonial Africa and modern-day London, with recurring characters aging a mere 25 years. Come experience the exhilarating world of CLOUD 9, where age, gender, race and sexuality are defined and re-defined.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
