Fuel have today announced the cast for the UK tour of Inua Ellams’ critically acclaimed Barber Shop Chronicles which returns by popular demand.
Maynard Eziashi, Mohammed Mansaray, Anthony Ofoegbu, Jo Servi and David Webber continue in their roles following the hugely successful tours of Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America and Canada. Michael Balogun, Tobi Bamtefa, Adé Dee Haastrup, Emmanuel Ighodaro, Demmy Ladipo, Rudolphe Mdlongwa, and Elander Moore join the cast which opens at the Royal Exchange, Manchester, in partnership with Contact, on 7th March 2019.
Newsroom, political platform, local hot-spot, 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 Bijan Sheibani and designed by Rae Smith, 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.
Barber Shop Chronicles is a Fuel, National Theatre and Leeds Playhouse co-production.
