One day. Six cities. A thousand stories.

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. This dynamic new play leaps from a barber shop in London to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, and Accra. These are places where the banter can be barbed and the truth is always telling.

“The National Theatre is my (other) favourite theatre in the world. When I saw this play there recently, the explosive energy of these artists made for a thrilling night. Hilarious, joyful, impactful, and made for today. The Grand proudly welcomes London to London.” – Dennis Garnhum

Co-commissioned by Fuel and the National Theatre. Development funded by Arts Council England with the support of Fuel, National Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Binks Trust, British Council ZA, Òran Mór and A Play, a Pie and a Pint.
