Full casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Nine Night, with writer Natasha Gordon set to star in the show.
She is joined by Oliver Alvin-Wilson (Robert), Michelle Greenidge (Trudy), Hattie Ladbury (Sophie), Rebekah Murrell (Anita) and Cecilia Noble (Aunt Maggie) who return to their celebrated NT roles, and Karl Collins (Uncle Vince) who completes the West End cast.
Directed by Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop), Nine Night is a touching and exuberantly funny exploration of the rituals of family.
Gloria is gravely sick. When her time comes, the celebration begins; the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake. But for Gloria’s children and grandchildren, marking her death with a party that lasts over a week is a test. Nine rum-fuelled nights of music, food, storytelling and laughter – and an endless parade of mourners.
The lead casting represents yet another remarkable feat for Natasha, whose play was a critical and commercial success, receiving rave reviews and selling out during its previous run. Now, it’s set to prove an unmissable West End hit.
Nine Night previews from 1 December, playing until 9 February 2019.
