Barber Shop Chronicles

Roundhouse · 18 JUL - 24 AUG

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories.

“This ground-breaking piece from Inua Ellams has been touring all over the world since it wowed London audiences with two sell-out runs at the National Theatre. If you didn’t catch it the first time around, you should definitely check it out now that it’s back in town. Set in different barber shops around the world, from Peckham to Johannesburg, this is a hugely entertaining piece of storytelling.”

Overview

Following two sell-out runs at the National Theatre and a world tour, Inua Ellams’ acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles comes to the Roundhouse this summer.

Newsroom, political platform, local hotspot, confession box, preacher-pulpit and football stadium. For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops to discuss the world. These are places where the banter can be barbed and the truth is always telling.

Directed by Olivier award-winning director Bijan Sheibani and designed by Rae Smith (War Horse), Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play that leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra over the course of a single day.

Don’t miss this ‘joyous and life-affirming’ (Independent) smash-hit, beginning 18 July for strictly limited season here in our main space.
