Here is a short synopsis:
More info and the link to it can be found on Keith's website itself.A chronicle of African-American men in a barbershop in Washington D.C., based on the book, Cuttin’ Up: Wit and Wisdom Inside Black Barbershops by Craig Marberry (the author of Crowns).
From new fades to dreadlocks, from old men to young, all men come to the barbershop to get a haircut and share their stories. The play is set in a barbershop manned by three barbers: Howard, the elder statesmen; Andre, a talented barber who moves cities and shops every couple of years; and Rudy, the young barber who cuts the hair of the children and has a lot to learn. Through real customers and the barbers’ memories, we see haircuts at all phases of life, as a rite of passage, the beginning of celebrations, and a source of pride.
