St. Ann's Warehouse celebrated the official opening of the American premiere of The Jungle December 9. The immersive production, previously seen in the West End, invites audiences into the now-closed refugee camp in Calais, France, known as The Jungle—where thousands of refugees from Africa and the Middle East built a society while they waited for their “good chance” passage to Britain.
