Description

A Leeds Playhouse and Nottingham Playhouse co-production
Directed by Amanda Huxtable

How do we remember the people we love? When Gloria’s time comes, her family celebrate their revered mother with the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake – a touching yet testing multi-generational gathering packed with music, food, laughter and tears.

Natasha Gordon’s remarkable award-winning debut play, which was originally commissioned by and played at the National Theatre ahead of a successful West End run, holds a mirror up to family life – and loss – reflecting the heartfelt comedy and deep sorrow that occurs when they gather together to share memories, good food and grievances older than Gloria’s well-loved dining table.

Inherently funny and intensely moving, Nine Night is a family celebration of life you won’t want to miss.

Nine Night is part of Jamaica Society Leeds’ Out of Many Festival, an extensive Leeds-based festival to celebrate 60 years of Jamaican independence.
