Performances begin December 4 at St. Ann's Warehouse for the American premiere of The Jungle. The immersive production 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.
The Jungle is written by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson with direction by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin. The co-production between Good Chance Theatre, National Theatre, and Young Vic arrives in the U.S. following a critically acclaimed debut at the Young Vic followed by a hit run in the West End.
The Jungle invites theatregoers into a ramshackle Afghani café, made of plywood tables, ill-matching chairs and benches, and a rickety patchwork roof to observe the everyday details of survival and threat that unfold.
