About the show

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.

Natasha Gordon's debut play, Nine Night, is a deeply moving and wickedly funny exploration of the rituals of family.

Jade Lewis was a Boris Karloff Trainee Assistant Director at the Young Vic. She was a Creative Associate at The Gate Theatre and one of Ovalhouse’s Emerging Artist team. She has also directed and assisted on community projects for Southwark Playhouse, Southbank Centre, Company 3 and The Young Vic.

Her director credits include Extinguished Things (Summerhall/Adelaide Fringe); Quarter Life Crisis (Underbelly/Soho Theatre); On the Edge of Me (Soho Theatre/Rich Mix).  As an assistant director, her credits include: Nine Night (National Theatre/Trafalgar Studios); The Convert, Iphigenia Quartet (Gate Theatre); a profoundly affectionate, passionate devotion to someone (-noun) (the Royal Court Theatre), Madness Sweet Madness (Martin Harris, Manchester/Lantern, Liverpool); Venus/Mars (Old Red Lion/Bush Theatre).

Natasha Gordon is an award-winning writer and actor born in London, of Jamaican descent.  Her debut play, Nine Night, enjoyed a stunning sold-out run at the National in April 2018 before transferring to Trafalgar Studios, making her the first black British female playwright to be produced in the West End.  In recognition of the play’s overwhelming success Natasha won the Charles Wintour Award for most promising playwright at the 2018 Evening Standard Theatre Awards.

As a performer, her stage credits include; Nine Night at Trafalgar Studios, Red Velvet at the Tricycle Theatre, The Low Road and Clubland at the Royal Court Theatre, Mules at the Young Vic and As You Like It at the RSC.  Film and TV includes; Dough, Line of Duty, Class, and Danny and the Human Zoo.​​​​​​
