Barber Shop Chronicles

Barber Shop Chronicles Tickets London

Barber Shop Chronicles gets an outing at the Dorfman Theatre and is Inua Ellams third play at the National, following his previous success with the exhilarating The 14th Tale and Black T-shirt Collection.

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories..........

What is a Barber Shop?  A Newsroom? Political platform? Local hot spot?  Confession box? Preacher-pulpit?  All of these??. For generations, it has been a tradition for African men to gather in Barber Shops to discuss the workings of the world.

This dynamic new play jumps from a Barber Shop to Barber Shop, taking in locations all over the world from London to Johannesburg, Harare, Lagos, Kampala, and Accra. In fact just about anywhere where the banter can be barbed and the truth is telling.
