About the show
Set in barbershops in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra, and London, Barber Shop Chronicles welcomes you into this unique, intimate community where African men gather to discuss the world and their lives. These are places where the banter can be barbed but the truth is always telling. Following its critically acclaimed run at the Royal National Theatre in London, this “funny and joyous but equally poignant” play (The Guardian) will warm your heart.
