‐ The Stage

What is Nine Night about?

Family, food, music and mourning. Gloria is gravely sick. When her time comes, the celebration begins; the traditional Jamaican Nine Night Wake. But for Gloria’s children and grandchildren, marking her death with a party that lasts over a week is a test. Nine nights of music, food, sharing stories – and an endless parade of mourners. Don’t miss out on this poignant production when it premieres in the West End – book tickets for Nine Night today!
