Experience the Playhouse Theatre’s extraordinary in-the-round transformation which recreates the intimate staging of The Jungle.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 performance space below. Wherever you choose to sit, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson’s The Jungle, directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin, transports you into the world of the Calais Jungle camp, where a community forged from necessity shares its unimaginable stories of hope against all odds. 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.
