What Is It?
The National Theatre Live in London presents a new live streaming series to keep you entertained at home during lockdown – National Theatre at Home! Join them this Thursday for the debut of The Barber Shop Chronicles! Filmed at the Roundhouse, London’s most iconic in-the-round performance space, Inua Ellams’ acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles is a must-see.
Newsroom, political platform, local hotspot, 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.
Directed by Olivier award-winning director Bijan Sheibani and designed by Rae Smith (War Horse), Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play that leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra over the course of a single day. Don’t miss it!
