STG Presents Barber Shop Chronicles at The Moore Theatre November 1-3, 2018. Presented in association with On the Boards.

A Fuel, National Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse co-production
Barber Shop Chronicles
Written by Inua Ellams
Directed by Bijan Sheibani

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories.

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 confession boxes, political platforms, preacher-pulpits and football pitches...places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world.

Fuel has produced Inua Ellams’ work for theater since his debut play nine years ago. BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new 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.
