For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops. Sometimes they have haircuts, sometimes they listen, more often than not they talk. Barber shops are places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world.
Fuel has produced Inua Ellams’ work for theatre since his debut play nine years ago. Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful play, set in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra, and London. The Play Invites the audience into a uniquely masculine environment where the banter may be barbed, but the truth always telling.
The barbers of these tales are sages, role models and father figures, they are the glue that keeps men together.
ONE DAY. SIX CITIES. A THOUSAND STORIES.
Not to be missed!!! Make sure you go to the Royal Exchange Theatre and Contact. Before it’s too late, your barber has warned you!!!!
