Karl Collins opened last night in the (critically acclaimed and box office smash) National Theatre production of 'Nine Night' which has transferred into the West End.
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.
Karl plays Uncle Vince who is sometimes a voice of reason in the chaos but was there more to his relationship with the late Gloria?
Nine Night plays at the Traflagar Studios until Feburary 23rd 2019.
