Cloud 9 by Caryl Churchill

At the Boca Raton Campus of Florida Atlantic University on Sept. 23 through Oct. 2 the winner of multiple awards, Cloud 9 had a long run Off-Broadway to rave reviews. It’s a biting, witty, satirical farce set in Victorian Africa and 1980s London. It riotously examines a cornucopia of sexual mores -- from heterosexual adultery to bisexual incest -- in a circus of carnal confusion and topsy-turvy theatrics. The New York Times called it "a non-stop round-robin of sexual liaisons" and "an evening of inspired lunacy" from one of the world's foremost playwrights. Visit FAUevents.com
