Jobsite closes the season with a reimagining of what Creative Loafing named a “Top 10 Play of the Decade.” Imagine a British sex farce put into a blender with a Women and Gender Studies thesis. Time shifts, women are played by men (and vice versa), and even black can be white. Act I introduces us to an uptight British family full of dirty little secrets administering a colony in Victorian Africa before jumping to present-day London in Act II to see how their lives have turned out. Cloud 9 mocks colonial and sexual repression in a farce that is as playful as it is poignant.
