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 <i>Nine Night</i> is a touching and very funny exploration of the rituals of family.

It was premiered at the National Theatre, London, in April 2018, directed by Roy Alexander Weise.
