TALK SHOP: Nigerian born playwright Inua Ellams brings the barbershop to the stage in a globe spanning play.

Barber Shop Chronicles is a funny, poignant journey through community and culture. Written by playwright Inua Ellams, Barber Shop Chronicles traverses African barber shops in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala and Lagos, and eventually winds up in London. Along the way, the play explores how the barber shop is a central hub of activity in society—a place where people can learn, confess, share wisdom and grow through collaborative knowledge. Tickets for Thursday and Friday night’s presentations are sold out. Matinee and evening showings are still open on Saturday.
