    Casting announced for West End transfer of Nine Night

    The West End transfer of Nine Night has just announced its cast. The debut play by Natasha Gordon enjoyed a sell-out run at the National Theatre earlier this year, earning universal critical acclaim. The show premieres at Trafalgar Studios this December.

    It has just been announced that Natasha Gordon will be starring in her own debut play, Nine Night, for its West End premiere. The writer and actress will be taking on the role of Lorraine.

    Starring alongside the Nine Night writer will be Cecilia Noble as Aunt Maggie, Hattie Ladbury as Sophie, Michelle Greenidge as Trudy, Oliver Alvin-Wilson as Robert and Rebekah Murrell as Anita, all of whom reprise their roles from the National Theatre production. The West End production will also see Karl Collins join the cast as Uncle Vince.

    Nine Night follows a family in mourning as they hold a family reunion for Nine Night (also known as Dead Yard), which is a Jamaican and Carribean funerary tradition that lasts for nine days, during which friends and family members gather at the home of the deceased. Once a calm tradition meant exclusively for mourning has now evolved into a celebration where attendees sing hymns, play music and enjoy a big feast, as they believe the deceased is no longer suffering and has moved on to a better place.

    The play is directed by Roy Alexander Weise, who won a JMK Award for the critically acclaimed revival of Katori Hall's The Mountaintop.

    Natasha Gordon’s Nine Night features lighting by Paule Constable, design by Rajha Shakiry, movement direction by Shelley Maxwell, and sound design by George Dennis.

    New playwright and Nine Night writer Natasha Gordon is a well-established actress whose stage credits include The Low Road and Clubland at the Royal Court Theatre, Red Velvet at the Tricycle Theatre, Mules at the Young Vic, and As You Like It at the RSC.

    The West End transfer of Nine Night will open at Trafalgar Studios on 1 December 2018 for previews and it officially premieres on 6 December 2018. The booking period is currently until 9 February 2019. Get 'woke' about this unique Caribbean wake tradition and book your tickets to Nine Night now!
