The National Theatre’s co-production (with Fuel and Leeds Playhouse) of THE BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES is available to watch for free until 7pm on Thursday 21st May (UK time).
BARBER SHOP CHRONICLES is Inua Ellams’ smash-hit play about the places where banter can be barbed, and the truth always is telling. Directed by Olivier award-winning director Bijan Sheibani, this heart-warming, hilarious and insightful new play leaps from a barber shop in Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra over the course of a single day.
This never-before-seen archive recording was not part of the NTLive broadcast series, but it was filmed live on stage at London’s National Theatre.
The running time is 1 hour 45 minutes with no interval. Suitable for ages 12+. It is subtitled.
Although this production is free to watch, please strongly consider making a donation to the National Theatre – or text NTATHOME 10 to 70085 to donate £10 – to enable it to keep its doors open after this crisis has passed.
