***** ‘An immersive, powerful experience. A deeply moving piece of theatre.’ Financial Times

Following universal critical acclaim, and direct from a sold-out run at the Young Vic, the National Theatre and Young Vic co-production with Good Chance Theatre of Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson’s The Jungle, directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin transfers to the West End this summer.

***** ‘Beautifully orchestrated. Wonderfully humane and illuminating.’ Independent

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 Caf?, and experience the intense, moving and uplifting encounters between refugees from many different countries and the volunteers who arrived from the UK.

***** ‘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.’ The Guardian

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 Caf? at the heart of the Calais Jungle, or watch from ‘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.

***** ‘A significant event in which theatre shakes hands with the world’ Sunday Times

***** ‘Full of music and movement; human resilience can be a glittering thing.’ Time Out

From Joe Robertson and Joe Murphy, a new play where worlds collide. In the worst places, you meet the best people.

Please note: Due to the unique nature of this production, where the cast surrounds and moves around the audience in the Afghan Cafe?, the layout of the theatre seating plan have been changed.
