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.

When does a place become a place?

From 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.
