St Ann’s Warehouse presents the US Premiere of:

The Jungle

By Joe Murphy & Joe Robertson

Directed by Stephen Daldry & Justin Martin

A Good Chance Theatre co-production with the National Theatre and Young Vic, beginning 4 December 2018

We're thrilled to announce that The Jungle will travel across the Atlantic this winter to the brilliant St Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn. Calais comes to New York in this transfer of the play that received multiple five-star reviews at the Young Vic in London over Christmas 2017 and won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Theatre in 2018.

The Jungle blew me away. Coupled with Sarah Hickson’s powerful photos of the original camp in its final days, the reality of what’s happening to massive numbers of innocent people seeking shelter and safety came bursting to life. The authors have written an elegy to a place where despite enormous hardship, everyday people joined together to survive and thrive on their own creativity and interdependence. We cannot turn away from the negligence and dehumanization our government would like us to believe ‘these people’ somehow deserve.
