Winner, Best Local Play, The Jungle, Broadway World Awards San Francisco, 2020
British playwrights Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, founders of Good Chance Theatre, established Good Chance’s first temporary theater space, an 11 meter geodesic dome, in the heart of the refugee and migrant camp in Calais in September 2015, where they lived for seven months before writing THE JUNGLE after the demolition of the camp.
“The Jungle was a reluctant home for thousands of people from all over the world. It was a place where people built temporary lives and communities formed out of necessity. People who visited asked why we built a theater in a refugee camp, but it’s always seemed clear to us that theater should be at the center of the conversation,” said Robertson and Murphy. “We’re thrilled to bring this play to West Coast audiences with its premiere at the historic Curran and look forward to sharing these timely and important stories.”
