Brian Barrow is a journalist, editor and writer.


A writer about a range of social and cultural matters, his writings include Song of a Dry River (1975), Tony Grogan's Vanishing Cape Town (with Tony Grogan, Don Nelson, 1976), South African People (Macdonald Heritage Library, 5: 1977), The Spirit of District Six (with photographer Cloete Breytenbach, Protea Boekhuis, 2016).

Contribution to South African theatre, film, media and performance

One of his most significant contributions to the history of South Arican theatre culture, was his role as a contributing author and co-editor, with Yvonne Williams-Short, of the 1987 book Theatre alive!: The Baxter Story, 1977-1987, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Baxter Theatre Complex. Of particular value are the first five chapters, in which Barrow recounts the history of the theatre and its presentations in those first ten years.
