  Rezumat:  Many a time the theatre has challenged the old traditional order of supremacist attitudes, making use of its power to translate experience into new forms, by offering its audience the opportunity to let go of a certain view of the world and embrace a new one. When artists challenge our dominant culture, and when their work is a site where sex, particularly gay sex is given coverage, or a place where sex and race intersect, they face resistance and censorship due to sexism, racism and homophobic reactions. But there are artists who do not allow the censors to compromise their freedom of speech: Caryl Churchill is one of these artists who constantly challenge that illusive and unstable line drawn between what should be censored and what should not. The dramas of Caryl Churchill are meant to incite, subvert, provoke and organise. She has broken the silences surrounding taboo topics such as sexuality and lesbianism, sexism, homophobia and racism in a play entitled Cloud Nine. The comprehensive picture of contemporary society that Churchill presents is really vivid, impressive and even touching at times, and makes the audience come to an understanding about the dangers of oppression and discrimination. The importance of Churchillís plays resides in the fact that they contribute to the creation of todayís history and clearly mirror the fragmentation of our society into a number of value systems fighting for supremacy.
