The cast of Nine Night at Trafalgar Studios

Natasha Gordon takes on the role of Lorraine in her very own play, which has recently earned her a Charles Wintour Award for Best Emerging Playwright and an Evening Standard Theatre Award for Most Promising Playwright. Her play, Nine Night, made history by becoming the first West End play to feature a black British female playwright.

Natasha Gordon is joined by Adele James (Understudy for Anita), Cecilia Noble (Aunt Maggie), Hattie Ladbury (Sophie), Irene-Myrtle Forrester (Understudy for Aunt Maggie), Jade Hackett (Understudy for Trudy/Aunt Maggie/Lorraine), Karl Collins (Uncle Vince), Kevin Mathurin (Understudy for Robert/Uncle Vince), Michelle Greenidge (Trudy), Oliver Alvin-Wilson (Robert), Rebecca Todd (Understudy for Sophie) and Rebekah Murrell (Anita).

What is Nine Night about?

Critically acclaimed play Nine Night is directed by Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop) and tells the moving yet occasionally hilarious tale of a family in mourning. Gloria is the root that holds the family tree together. But when she unexpectedly passes away, a family reunion is in order that unexpectedly pits them against each other as they discuss such heavy topics as selling Gloria's house to immigration. Of course, Nine Night is also a ritual of celebration that honours the life of the deceased. Join Lorraine and the family in this traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake filled with plenty of rum, music, food, comedy and a surprise shock ending that will leave you begging for a sequel.
