Cloud Nine by Caryl Churchill
P R E S S:
“It's easy to be on cloud nine as a talented cast from the Yale School of Drama under an astute director present a rambunctious yet pointed revival of one of playwright Caryl Churchill’s early plays, “Cloud Nine,” at the Iseman Theater….Director Margot Bordelon has clearly embraced Churchill’s text with a deep appreciation and understanding, offering a heartfelt production that is as enjoyable as it is rewarding.”
-Andrew Beck, Examiner
“They’re dead all right, but they’re about to come alive in a spirited revival of Cloud Nine, British playwright Caryl Churchill’s bravura send-up of all things Kipling and colonial.
Welcome to the energetic production by the students of the Yale School of Drama of Caryl Churchill’s 1981 groundbreaking play, which opened Tuesday night for a short run.”
- Allan Appel, New Haven Independent
“The Yale troupe…throw themselves into their roles with energy and skill, with nary a misstep. To single any out would not do them service. This Cloud Nine is an ensemble piece in the true sense of the word.
The set is a major reason the show transcends whatever time-stamped baggage it brings with it, as does Margot Bordelon's crisp and well-paced direction.”
