written and directed by Charles Randolph-Wright
adapted from the book by Craig Marberry
Now through January 1, 2006
in the Kreeger Theater at Arena Stage
Director Charles Randolph-Wright returns once again to Arena Stage with this lovingly crafted collection, gathered by Craig Marberry (Crowns), of personal history, national news, superstition and community lore. Across the country, haircuts tell the tales in the local barber shops: A departing soldier wants to ship out sporting a sharp new fade. A father christens his son with his first trim. Young men with dreadlocks brag about women and worry about their families. The barber shop is a community, and its denizens are the storytellers of their time, sharing the joys and troubles life hands them. Together, these colorful stories illustrate a remarkably simple truth: "When you have history, you belong."
