Barber Shop Chronicles
A Fuel, National Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse co-production Written by Inua Ellams.
Zipping between Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London, this flamboyant musical feast by the UK's preeminent theater company captures the heart and soul of the barber shop as a place for men of Africa and the African diaspora to gather and talk—with some hair-trimming on the side. With a punchy, truth-telling script by Nigerian-born poet/playwright Inua Ellams, barbers and their customers joke, squabble, tell tall tales and (of course) discuss soccer—all the while raising profound issues of migration, race, masculinity and fatherhood. The 12 bustling actors use bursts of song, chant and movement to engineer transitions from one country and character to another.Contains adult language and a moment of partial nudity.
