Joyous. Brilliantly acted. Life-affirming. Go.

The Independent

Newsroom and political platform, confession box and stadium—for generations, barber shops have been places where African men gather to discuss the world. Leaping from London to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, and Accra, Inua Ellams’ dynamic new play traces the global ties between these spaces where the banter can be barbed and the truth is always telling. Barber Shop Chronicles arrives in Cambridge as part of its US premiere tour following critically acclaimed runs at London’s National Theatre and the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

By Inua Ellams
Directed by Bijan Sheibani
Design by Rae Smith
A Fuel, National Theatre, and West Yorkshire Playhouse co-production
