Nine Night In The West End – at the Trafalgar Studios through to 23 February 2019
Following a smash-hit run at the National Theatre, Nine Night transfers to the West End. It is Natasha Gordon’s ‘remarkable debut play’ Evening Standard.
Roy Alexander Weise directs a cast of seven. This includes Cecilia Noble as the ‘gloriously funny and formidable Aunt Maggie’ Independent. A touching and exuberantly funny exploration of the rituals of family.
This is how it goes
Family, food, music and mourning.
Gloria is gravely sick. When her time comes, the celebration begins. And the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake. Gloria’s children and grandchildren mark her death. It’s with a party that lasts over a week. But it is a test. Nine nights of music, food, sharing stories. And an endless parade of mourners.
Likely to drink lots of rum and dance the nine nights through!
Trafalgar Studios, 14 Whitehall, Westminster, London SW1A 2DY
