Barber Shop Chronicles is Inua Ellams’ smash-hit play about the places where banter can be barbed, and the truth always is telling.

Directed by Olivier award-winning director Bijan Sheibani, this heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra over the course of a single day.

It is subtitled. The running time is 1 hour 45 minutes with no interval. Suitable for ages 12+.

This never-before-seen archive recording was filmed live on stage at London’s National Theatre.
