A Young Vic and National Theatre production with Good Chance Theatre

"This devastating, uplifting show is beady-eyed even as it celebrates the human capacity to build something out of nothing, to work together and try to make a difference. Good Chance – returning to France in January to set up a theatre in a migrant centre in the north of Paris – is doing just that. Let’s listen and learn."

Lyn Gardner, Guardian 

From 16 June 2018 The Jungle will play at the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End

Experience the Playhouse Theatre as never before, as the venue undergoes an extraordinary transformation to recreate the intimate in-the-round staging of Miriam Buether’s critically-acclaimed Young Vic design. Audiences are invited to choose from two unique experiences: take a seat at the benches and tables of the vibrant and bustling Afghan Café at the heart of the Calais Jungle, or watch from ‘The Cliffs of Dover’ in the circle, overlooking the dynamic performance space below. Wherever you sit, prepare to be transported into the world of the Calais camp, where a community forged from necessity shares its unimaginable stories of hope against all odds.

When does a place become a place?

In December 2017 to January 2018, audiences met the hopeful, resilient residents of “The Jungle”– just across the Channel, right on our doorstep. They joined refugees and volunteers from around the world over fresh baked naan and sweet milky chai at the Afghan Café.  

From Good Chance Theatre, an immersive new play where worlds collide. In the worst places, you meet the best people.
