Straight from its sellout debut at London’s National Theatre, Barber Shop Chronicles has got audiences and critics buzzing.

A lively, life-affirming and “irresistibly joyful” (Daily Mail) portrait of the modern-day barber shop, it tackles the big topics – fatherhood, friendship, politics and football –  against an energetic backdrop of banter, boasting, and African beats.

In a universal tale that spans Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London, this “flamboyant, musical, moveable feast” (The Times) captures the heart and soul of the barber shop as a place for African men to gather and talk (and talk and talk) – with some hair trimming on the side.

Barber Shop Chronicles is guaranteed great entertainment, from the heart. Take a front-row seat in the barber shops of Africa and London and settle in for an exhilarating night of theatre.
