"Women are irrational, demanding, inconsistent, treacherous, lustful, and they smell different from us."

—Clive, Cloud Nine

In a tropical outpost of Queen Victoria's glorious Empire, Betty is the perfect wife and mother of an upstanding colonial family. Fast forward 100 years to the urban jungle of contemporary London. Betty and her children must redefine themselves in a world of rapidly changing social norms. Renowned playwright Caryl Churchill's hilarious and politically charged satire still challenges our assumptions about gender, sexuality, race, and family, and urges us to question the roles we play and the forces that shape us.
