Atlantic announces full casting for Cloud Nine


The Atlantic Theater Company has now announced full casting for its upcoming revival of Caryl Churchill's comic-drama Cloud Nine, as part of its 30th Anniversary 2015-2016 off-Broadway season.

Directed by Obie Award winner James Macdonald, the cast includes Brooke Bloom (Edward / Betty), Sean Dugan (Joshua / Gerry), Lucy Owen (Maude / Victoria), Chris Perfetti (Betty / Edward), John Sanders (Harry Bagley / Martin), Izzie Steele (Ellen / Mrs. Saunders / Lin), and Clarke Thorell (Clive / Cathy / Soldier).

Cloud Nine begins previews at the Linda Gross Theater on 16 September, before an official opening on 5 October, and a limited run through to 1 November 2015.

Synopsis: "Set in colonial Africa and 1979 London, Caryl Churchill's landmark play is about power, politics, family, Queen Victoria and sex. This timeless and bitingly funny modern classic has not been seen in a major New York production since 1981, when it ran for over two years."

The creative team behind Cloud Nine has also been announced and features scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Gabriel Berry, lighting design by Scott Zielinksi, and sound design by Darron L West.
