Double Bill 2014
with added doughnuts

Cloud Nine's July 2014 production was a first for the company - two brand new plays on the same bill! Two voices from our region, one the debut of Newcastle-based writer Joanna Rimmer (whose play evolved from our recent playwriting workshops), the other the return of our very own Peter Mortimer.

Sweet 'n' Sticky
- by Joanna Rimmer

He's Eating His Heart out...

This is a lively, irreverent highly comic piece about the consequences to a marriage when the husband dedicates himself to winning a donut eating contest: and in another first, Cloud Nine are grateful to Whitley Bay baker Brian Clement, who not only provided the doughnuts required on stage, but added a few for the audience, too! Read the full story here.

"... a simple story brought to life by the energetic playing of the cast and Neil Armstrong's fast-paced direction ensures that laugh follows laugh in rapid succession."

The Young Man, the Old Woman and the Roof
- by Peter Mortimer

Fix those missing slates, missus....?

Peter Mortimer's newest play is a modern urban fable on the potential pitfalls awaiting a casual commercial transaction. But they're not quite what you would imagine...

The show played at the Low Lights for three nights (photographed, top, by David Turnbull then moved to a new venue at Tynemouth's Surf Café, and ended its run at the Under the Dome Festival, Whitley Bay (remaining photographs by Dave Shaw).

"The ending is hilariously unexpected, which, combined with the almost manic energy and speed of the direction and performances, left the audience roaring with laughter."

Peter Lathan, British Theatre Guide
