7:30 pmTheatre Production: "Cloud 9" (Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre) Armstrong Hall
Written in 1979 and filled with time jumps, cross-dressing, gender switching, biting humor, double-casting, and age-defiance, "Cloud 9" offers an opportunity for British playwright Caryl Churchill to deploy painful satire in questioning preconceived notions of family status, gender constructs, social norms, and sexual roles. Drawing a parallel between colonial and sexual repression, Churchill sets her play first in the exploitative atmosphere of Colonial Africa during the Victorian Era, and then in the 1970s and early '80s sexual revolution of London. Though 100 years pass between acts, the same characters continue their struggles to define, maintain, or suppress their true identities under the social codes and constructs of their times. Winner of the 1981 Obie Award for Playwriting, Churchill's "Cloud 9" reveals the ties of colonial oppression and the bindings of post-colonial identities. The show runs April 26-27 and May 3-4 at 7:30 p.m. and May 5 at 2 p.m. in Plumb-Fleming Studio Theatre, Armstrong Hall. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors/students/youth. Free for faculty, staff, and students. For tickets contact the Box Office at 319-895-4293.
