Nine is having a short break while our Artistic Director, Peter
Mortimer works on his new play, 'Rainbird and gets to grips with
planning the third Iron festival 'IRON in the Soul,' happening at the
beginning of June.
Cloud Nine actors will not be resting but will be acting in various
productions including in Ruth Henderson’s play, 'Those in Peril'-see
the NEXT UP page for details. See you in Autumn 2017 when we hope to
offer more dramatic experiences in unusual venues, including our
forthcoming show, 'Dirty Flea Bitten Scrounging Bastards.'
Nine has now produced the work of 30 different playwrights. Its range
of work includes a play walked and performed the length of the Roman
Wall (Off the Wall), a short play performed for morning commuters on
the Shields Ferry (Ships that Pass), a play centred on the Meadow Well
riots of 1991 plus a four year programme of small scale new theatre
performed at the Low Lights Tavern, North Shields, and other North
Tyneside coastal venues.
Cloud Nine’s 20th anniversary this year! Yes, hard to believe that
we’ve been cramming the general public into diverse venues from the Low
Light pub to the Surf Café to the Shields Ferry and the Whitley Bay
Playhouse. And they have watched original drama each time, newly
written to suit the venue and to give the audience something to
consider, even if that consideration was ‘what was that all about?’
So, we are planning a celebration of still being here and still being
critically regarded after 20 years. Watch this space.
speaking of significant anniversaries, Cloud Nine's much appreciated
chairman, Mike Jessop had a significant birthday at the beginning of
May which we celebrated in style (not really but the wine went down
well). You can see from the photo that the candle budget was
