About Sweet Fade

Abby is a barber. She lives and breathes beard trims and slickbacks and flat tops. Her barber chair is like a therapist’s couch, a priest’s confessional - complete strangers tell her secrets they’d never share with their wives, or mates, or boyfriends, or bosses. These brief, transitory interactions, are woven into a new narrative of a day in the life of a female barber. Sexual power, London, misogyny, freedom, cash-in-hand, hand-to-mouth, fragile masculinity and ‘next, please..’ all feature as she comes to new realisations of her worth and potential. Sweet Fade is written and performed by Charlotte Powell, and directed by Orlando James.
