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.
‘An immersive, powerful experience. A deeply moving piece of theatre.’
‘Beautifully orchestrated. Wonderfully humane and illuminating.’
‘A significant event in which theatre shakes hands with the world’
‘An extraordinarily effective piece of theatre. It celebrates the human capacity to build something out of nothing, to work together and try to make a difference.’
‘Full of music and movement; human resilience can be a glittering thing.’
Due to the unique nature of this production, where the cast surrounds and moves around the audience in the Afghan Café, we cannot guarantee you will see every actor at all times. This is a deliberate design feature which enhances your experience in The Jungle.
