Good Chance, the initiative founded by British playwrights Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson that established a temporary theatre space in the heart of the refugee camp in Calais in September 2015, is coming to London, with a season at London's Southbank Centre and two events being staged at Somerset House on the north side of the river as well.
The line-up at the Southbank Centre will include the return of British actor Cush Jumbo to London after her recent stints on Broadway in The River and in The Taming of the Shrew at Central Park's Delacorte Theater and on TV in The Good Wife. She will perform Nassim Soleimanpour's White Rabbit Red Rabbit for one performance only August 7.
With no rehearsals, no director and a script waiting in a sealed envelope onstage, Soleimanpour's play premiered in 2011, and has since been performed over 1,000 times by actors and artists that have included Juliet Stevenson, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, John Hurt, Simon McBurney, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack and Ken Loach.
