Barber Shop Chronicles

Barber Shop Chronicles

4.4 (9) · New Writing, Contemporary

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories.


Newsroom, political platform, local hot spot, confession box, preacher-pulpit and football stadium. For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops to discuss the world.

This dynamic new play leaps from a barber shop in London to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra. These are places where the banter can be barbed and the truth is always telling.

Critic reviews

Joyous. Brilliantly acted. Life-affirming. Go.


Rich and exhilarating. A fascinating peek into the barber shop.

The Stage

Throbs with energy and heat. Full of sadness and great joy.
