PRODUCTIONS > THE JUNGLE
by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertston
Directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin
This is the place where people suffered and dreamed. Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle– just across the Channel, right on our doorstep. The Jungle tells stories of loss, fear, community and hope, of the Calais camp’s creation - and of its eventual destruction. Join the residents over freshly baked naan and sweet milky chai at the Afghan Café, and experience the intense, moving and uplifting encounters between refugees from many different countries and the volunteers who arrived from the UK.
Visit our YouTube channel to listen to the writers, directors, cast and creative team who made the show happen.
