One day. Six cities. A thousand stories.

Following a sell-out run at the National Theatre, Inua Ellams’ acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles makes a much-anticipated visit to Oxford.

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 Bijan Sheibani, 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.

Duration: 1 hour 45mins with no interval
