THE JUNGLE

BY JOE MURPHY & JOE ROBERTSON

DIRECTED BY STEPHEN DALDRY & JUSTIN MARTIN

St Ann’s Warehouse and Good Chance present a Good Chance, National Theatre and Young Vic co-production of The Jungle returning to St Ann’s Warehouse on April 2, 2020.

The Jungle is an intense remembrance of the now bulldozed camp in Calais, France. There, thousands of refugees who had escaped drought, war, and strife-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East waited for their "good chance" passage to Britain. The Jungle invites audiences into a faithfully replicated Afghan restaurant, where endless cycles of survival and threat, failed social contracts, creative thought and action, compassion, and empathy unfold.

Directed with kinetic aplomb by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin...[The Jungle] does not so much present its story as plunge us directly into it, to astonishing emotional effect
