The Jungle at the Playhouse Theatre

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Following universal critical acclaim, and direct from a sold-out run at the Young Vic, The Jungle transfers to the Playhouse Theatre. 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 fresh 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.

Audiences are invited to choose from two unique experiences: take a seat in the bustling Afghan Café in the stalls, or watch from the traditional theatre seating of the ‘Cliffs of Dover’ in the Dress Circle, where the view overlooking the dynamic performance space is enhanced by accompanying video screens relaying ‘live news broadcast’-style footage of some of the action.

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.

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.
