Barber Shop Chronicles

Inua Ellams play leaps from Peckham to Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos and Accra to show how African men gather in barber shops to discuss women, fatherhood, football, politics and the state of the world.
The image puts the audience right in the barber chair, with the title handpainted on the wall in the style of the barber shop signs found in Africa.
