About Barber Shop Chronicles

Lagos. Johannesburg. Accra. Kampala. Harare. London.

Six radically different cities, all united by a familiar place where you can get more than just a good trim. Barber Shop Chronicles conjures the sacred space where discussion ranges from politics to family to soccer to Tupac.

Nigerian-British playwright Inua Ellams weaves a rich tapestry of unfiltered stories about father-son relationships and black masculinity, set to an Afrobeat score. This runaway international sensation is “a joyous piece of theatre” (The Independent).
