After a rapturous response at the National Theatre, Natasha Gordon’s debut play, Nine Night, will open at Trafalgar Studios in December this year.

The touching play explores the world of families and the rituals they undertake.

When the seriously ill Gloria’s time comes, her family begin the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake. But celebrating her life and marking her death with a party that lasts over a week tests her children and grandchildren. It’s nine nights of music, food, stories – and an endless parade of mourners. How will the three generations that Gloria’s left behind cope with her passing?

The National Theatre production was a critical and commercial success receiving rave reviews and selling out.

Nine Night is directed by Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop). Original design by Rajha Shakiry, with lighting by multi-Olivier Award-winner Paule Constable, sound by George Dennis, movement by Shelley Maxwell, fight direction by Bret Yount, company voice work by Rebecca Cuthbertson, dialect coaching by Hazel Holder, and staff direction by Jade Lewis.

The limited run at Trafalgar Studios will take place from 1 December 2018 – 9 February 2019, with press night on 6 December.
