Barber Shop ChroniclesTwo years after opening at the National Theatre, Inua Ellams' much celebrated play, the Barber Shop Chronicles, is staged at the Roundhouse, specifically adapted for the in-the-round performance space. Directed by Bijan Sheibani, the National Theatre's co-production with Fuel and West Yorkshire Playhouse explores the timely concerns, personal trials and tribulations of the customers and staff of barber shops. Leaping from London, Johannesburg, and Harare to Kampala, Lagos and Accra, Ellams' drama is inspired by the barber shops he visited as a teenager near his home in Peckham. In its five star review The Independent described it at a "joyous piece of theatre", set in six cities on one day.

 

About Roundhouse

It's great to see this fabulous arts venue re-open its doors after a stunning refurbishment. Boasting a colourful history, the Roundhouse initially started life as an engine shed. It was later transformed into a bonded warehouse for Gilbey's Gin before Arnold Wesker the playwright came along in 1964 and established Centre 42 here, insisting it became one of the most cutting-edge performing arts venue in the country.
