Background


The Noble Nine is based on an idea originally commissioned by The Oxford School of Drama, and first performed at the Soho Theatre Upstairs in September 2017.

Synopsis


Don't you want to finally be one of the Nine?


To be noble? A bit above things, regardless of earthly cost?


Estelle West used her grandchildren as inspiration for her novel series, The Noble Nine.


Grown up and estranged, the grandchildren gather at Estelle's death bed.


There she reveals that she hid their inheritance as gold in the family mansion on the remote island where they spent their childhoods.


The grandchildren decide to reunite as the Noble Nine for one last adventure to find the treasure, and set off for the island.


Yet when they reach their home, they find their idyllic memories of the past confronted by a series of dark secrets.


Their explosive visit unleashes a violent force that threatens to both destroy both the island and, worst of all, ruin the Nine for good.


The Noble Nine is a thrilling dark comedy about nostalgia.


It casts an affectionate yet cynical eye over children's literature of the past, and considers what stories we tell ourselves as a nation, and what this means for our future.
