National Theatre At Home: BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES

London's National Theatre Live continues it's presentions of free full-length plays, via YouTube, with BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES, starting on May 14.

Following two sell-out runs at the National Theatre, a world tour, and a hugely successful summer residency at London's Roundhouse, Inua Ellams’ acclaimed BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES is now available to watch through National Theatre at Home.

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, 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.

This enhanced archive recording was captured by the National Theatre in January 2018 and features the original cast.

More information and learning resources can be found on the National Theatre at Home web page.

This show will be available on the National Theatre YouTube Channel.



To provide some entertainment for theatre fans while they're not able to visit their venues, National Theatre will release one of their past recorded-live titles each week though out April and May. Each play will be available to watch on YouTube for one week, starting on a Thursday at 2pm (7pm UK time)
