Is this a review? What is its position?

"The double-casting illuminates a central theme: that identity is constructed, and when it is suppressed or colonized, things get screwed up." ...?

The rest of this five-paragraph article appears to be a synopsis of the significant moments in the performance.

Caryl Chuchill's "Cloud 9" is a monument of the West's dramatic canon whose themes depict social contradictions which continue to plague this society. Seems like a missed opportunity to critique the performance of such an important text.
