Barber Shop Chronicles: Autumn Tour

Posted on: 3rd October 2019

After a successful season at The Roundhouse, Barber Shop Chronicles thrilled audiences when it kicked off it’s autumn tour at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre last week.

Barber Shop Chronicles will be touring to the following UK venues:

Oxford Playhouse 9th – 12th October 2019

Eden Court, Inverness 17th– 19th October 2019

The Lyceum, Edinburgh 23rd October – 9th November 2019

Nuffield Southampton Theatres 13th – 16th November 2019

Leeds Playhouse 20th – 23rd November 2019

Newsroom, political platform, local hot-spot, 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 Bijan Sheibani and designed by Rae Smith, Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play, that leaps from barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, and Accra over the course of a single day.
