Nine Night by Natasha Gordon, National Theatre
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 [read interview].
Info: Nine Night by Natasha Gordon is at the National Theatre from 21 Apr to 26 May 2018 | Book tickets
