AUTOGRAPH ABP: THE BARBER SHOP READING AND PERFORMANCE BY INUA ELLAMS

Poet and playwright Inua Ellams will read his essay Cutting Through. This is an anecdotal and humorous description of Ellams’ experiences travelling through Africa comparing barbershops: a research trip which ultimately led to him writing the Barber Shop Chronicles a play recently staged at the National Theatre in London.

Cutting Through has been published in The Good Immigrant (2016), a book bringing together fifteen emerging British black, Asian and minority ethnic writers, poets, journalists and artists exploring race, immigration and what it means to be ‘other’.

In addition to Cutting Through, Ellams will also share a selection of poems that further explore the changing nature of contemporary masculinity, and the quest for safe spaces. #BarberShop #InuaEllams

When: THURSDAY 22 FEBRUARY, 7 – 8PM Cost: £3. Where: Autograph ABP, Rivington Place, London EC2A 3BA
