About Nine Night

Family, food, music and mourning.

Following an acclaimed run at the National Theatre, Natasha Gordon’s “remarkable debut play” (Evening Standard), Nine Night, transfers to the West End.

Nine Night, otherwise 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.

This exuberant tale is taking up residence at Trafalgar Studios from December, don’t miss out.


‘Remarkable. Captures the humour of everyday life.’

Evening Standard


‘Exuberantly funny. A joy!’

The Guardian


‘Natasha Gordon’s debut play buzzes with comic energy.’



Casting to be announced.

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…
