Natasha Gordon’s Nine Night reminds us why it’s important to support new playwrights
Thousands of stories remain untold by playwrights who dream of seeing the names of their works up in lights. But as paying theatregoers, we have the power to govern what’s on in London theatre because we vote with our wallets. And our ‘vote’ is what helped make history in 2018 when Natasha Gordon’s Nine Night transferred to Trafalgar Studios, becoming the first-ever play by a black female playwright to be staged in the West End. It followed Arinzé Kene’s Misty, which played at the venue a few months prior and marked a change in what was being greenlit for the stage – and what by whom. Nine Night is a perfect reminder to us all that there are voices waiting to be heard, and while some may argue that black British playwrights are few and far between, perhaps the real issue is that they are simply not being discovered.

London Theatre Review: Nine Night at Trafalgar Studios
National Theatre’s Nine Night deserves its transfer. Natasha Gordon (who also appears as Lorraine) has written a story that many will relate to; whether it be as a Caribbean dysphoria story or just as a family drama. The play begins with the death of Gloria; matriarch to 3 generations. Her death isn’t a surprise but it is clear her children Robert (Oliver Alvin-Wilson) and Lorraine don’t know how to cope, let alone deal with all the friends and relatives that descend for nine nights of mourning.
