About Nine Night

Following an acclaimed run at the National Theatre, Natasha Gordon’s Nine Night, transfers to the West End. The practice of Nine Night also known as Dead Yard, is a funerary tradition practiced by Jamaican communities. Gloria is gravely sick and when her time comes, the celebration begins.

Directed by Roy Alexander Weise, this touching story explores the rituals of family, the ability to inhabit two cultures – one ancient and one modern – and the tensions that arise following the passing of a loved one.


Natasha Gordon plays Lorraine. She is the playwright behind Nine Night and is the first black British playwright to have a play staged in the West End.

The cast is completed by Oliver Alvin-Wilson, Karl Collins, Michelle Greenidge, Hattie Ladbury, Rebekah Murrell and Cecilia Noble. The understudies are Jade Hackett, Adele James, Kevin Mathurin and Rebecca Todd.

What's the story?

Gloria has passed away. She came to Britain from Jamaica, leaving behind a large family who will mark her death through Nine Night, acknowledging her ancestral past.

For Gloria’s children and grandchildren, however, recognising her death with a party that lasts over a week is a test.

An endless parade of mourners, nine rum-fuelled nights of music, food, storytelling, laughter and a dash of tension…
