An Intimate & Celebratory Portrait Of Barber Shop Culture

Following critically acclaimed runs on London's West End this year, UK-based playwright, poet and performer Inua Ellams' critically acclaimed portrait of the concept of African masculinity and its relationship barber shops of the world tours US shores. Funny, joyous and deeply moving, The Barber Shop Chronicles invites the audience into an intimate world of male grooming and its multi-purpose functions as a place of confession, companionship and political discourse.

Taking place in a colorful parade of barber shops in Johannesburg, Accra, Kampala, Lagos, Harare and South London, the revelatory production tells the stories of men who've travelled far from home, fathers and sons strengthening their bonds, men cut off from their fathers and men searching for friendship amidst conversations, arguments and jokes. Earnest and poetic, Ellams' innovative writing bears the marks of a future theatre icon.

The show is every bit as grand, electric, quiet, and transportive as its Broadway counterpart; in certain actors' cases, perhaps even more so!
