ABOUT THE SHOW

Family matriarch Gloria has died, and her family gathers for the traditional Jamaican Nine Night, a multi-day celebration (and endurance test) full of food, revelry, and a nonstop parade of mourners. Natasha Gordon’s debut play—a popular triumph in its 2018 National Theatre premiere and subsequent West End run—explores the tensions of inhabiting two cultures, the inescapable bonds of family, and the many layers of grief in an “exuberantly funny” (The Guardian) and profoundly relatable story of the ties that bind. Raved The Guardian’s Michael Billington, “Playwrighting debuts don’t come much better than this.”

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Patrons must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry and wear masks while attending performances at our theatre, with limited exceptions. Click here for full details.**

Whether it’s a pre-show discussion with the designers or a post-show talkback with the actors and special guests, Round House offers numerous opportunities throughout each production to enhance your experience as an audience member. Learn more here.

Nine Night runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.

Nine Night is sponsored by Nan Beckley.
