Cloud 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.'

Cloud 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.

It’s 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.

And 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 sparse!
