Nine Night

Author(s): Natasha Gordon
Company: Nottingham Playhouse and Leeds Playhouse

When Gloria’s time comes, her family celebrate their revered mother with the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake—a touching yet testing multi-generational gathering packed with music, food, laughter and tears.

Natasha Gordon’s award-winning debut play, which was originally commissioned by and played at the National Theatre ahead of a West End run, holds a mirror up to family life—and loss—reflecting the heartfelt comedy and deep sorrow that occurs when they gather together to share memories, good food and grievances older than Gloria’s well-loved dining table.
