•The Nine Night

1983

Bush Theatre, London | 24th March – 9th April
The Factory, Amsterdam | 12th – 30th April

Hamon Williams has lived in exile in England for twenty years. He calls a family gathering to propose that the family can regain its unity by travelling back to their homeland, Jamaica.

The Nine Night ritual for the dead is performed to help the troubled soul cross into Paradise and Hamon's nine night is a cathartic experience of challenge, self-examination and release, that allows him to travel back to Jamaica.
