WNYC News (Audio) - “This is riveting theater, with high stakes and complex characters.”
The Hollywood Reporter - “Three-time Oscar nominee Stephen Daldry co-directs this acclaimed London import immersively re-creating the real-life camp in Calais that served as a temporary home to thousands of refugees.”

New York Stage Review - “Masterful, timely and devastating living theater.”
As part of Good Chance’s efforts around the show to involve local communities, engage local artists and inspire young people, we developed a mural project alongside the Curran.
We worked alongside a violence prevention and youth development organisation ‘United Playaz’ to develop a design based as a response to The Jungle which will then be painted on a temporary wall outside of the Curran.
The youth groups participated in several workshops after seeing The Jungle, discussing themes on home, movement and safety.
