Barber Shop Banter and Bonding
For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops. Sometimes they have haircuts, sometimes they listen, more often than not, they talk. Barber shops are confession boxes, political platforms, preacher pulpits and football pitches... places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world. Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming new play, set in barber shops across Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London.
