Arriving at the Trafalgar Studios after a wave of critical acclaim at its National Theatre run earlier this year, Nine Night already bears the acclaim and intense scrutiny that comes with being the first ever West End play written by a black woman.
We celebrate the fact that Nine Night is the first play by a black British female playwright to make it into the West End, as Natasha Gordon’s debut makes the move from the National’s smallest space in the Dorfman Theatre to the Trafalgar Studios in one giant leap.
Natasha Gordon will take the role of Lorraine in her debut play Nine Night when the critically-acclaimed production transfers from the National Theatre to the Trafalgar Studios on 1 December 2018 (press night is 6 December), running until 9 February 2019.
Details have been announced for the National Theatre’s season running from July 2018 to January 2019. Highlights include Peter Brook returning to direct at the NT for the first time in 50 years with The Prisoner, plus new plays from Nina Raine and Anthony Neilson.
