Nine Night

a new play by Natasha Gordon

Now playing until 26 May
Running Time: Approx. 1 hour 45 mins no interval

Nine Night

Family, food, music and mourning.

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 nights of music, food, sharing stories – and an endless parade of mourners.

Natasha Gordon’s debut play Nine Night is a touching and very funny exploration of the rituals of family. Roy Alexander Weise directs a cast including Cecilia Noble.

£20 Friday Rush tickets will be available each week - even for sold out performances.
