Cloud Nine is having a short break while our Artistic Director, Peter Mortimer works on his new play, 'Rainbird' 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.'
AND NOW... FURTHER NEWS OF 'RAINBIRD'......
NEW BACKING FROM ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND JUST ANNOUNCED
Cloud Nine has just heard that Arts Council England has awarded the company £13,500 towards the production of the play, Rainbird in the Spring of 2018 at the Exchange, North Shields. The proposed play by our artistic director Peter Mortimer has already been guaranteed support by Heritage Lottery Fund, Peggy Ramsey Foundation and North Tyneside Council.
Peter commented, 'This is really great news in these days of such tight funding. Arts Council England was our major bid. Small companies such as Cloud Nine based so far away from the capital often get overlooked. This is a really important large-scale project for us in our new home.'
Rainbird will be directed by Neil Armstrong and concerns the tragic life of painter Victor Noble Rainbird, who died in 1937.
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.
