This dynamic new play leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra.
Newsroom, political platform, local hot spot, 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.
Following critically acclaimed seasons at the National Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse, Barber Shop Chronicles returned to the National Theatre from November 2017.
