      Cloud 9

      Eclipse opens the 2020 Caryl Churchill Season with her time-shifting comedy, Cloud 9, both a parody and spoof of the Victorian Empire and its rigid attitudes, especially toward sex. There is Clive, a British functionary; his wife Betty (played by a man); their daughter Victoria (a rag doll); Clive’s friend Harry, an explorer; Mrs. Saunders, who runs about dressed in a riding habit; Clive’s son Edward, who still plays with dolls and is played by a woman; and Joshua, a native servant who knows exactly what is really going on. What is really going on is a marvelous send-up and a non-stop round-robin of sexual liaisons. The second act shifts to London in 1980, except for the surviving characters it is only 25 years later and all those repressed sexual longings have evaporated, along with the Empire. PG-13 due to language, absurdity. Performance lasts 2 hours plus a 10-minute intermission.

      Cost: 9.50 to 18.50
