“THE JUNGLE ARRIVES IN NEW YORK WITH ASTONISHING POIGNANCY AND POWER…It feels as if all the world is holding its breath.”
The New York Times, Critics’ Pick!

Following its acclaimed, sold-out run last winter, St. Ann’s Warehouse will launch a U.S. tour of The Jungle by restaging the Good Chance/National Theatre/Young Vic production in Spring 2020. This “thrilling… ravishing … devastating” play (The New York Times), which took London and New York by storm, memorializes a bulldozed camp in Calais, France, where thousands of refugees who had escaped drought, war, and strife-torn countries, waited for their “good chance” passage to Britain. Revisit the Afghan Flag Restaurant, and break bread with the resilient refugees and volunteers who, with minimal resources in a cold, inhospitable environment, built a warm, self-governing society from nothing.

The Jungle puts a human face on the people hidden away by news blackouts and heartless policies meant to conceal an inhumane response to a global crisis. The Jungle asks and addresses why we need to cross borders in search of hope and safety and how we must respond with empathy and compassion instead of fear and punishment.

Runtime: 2 hours, 45 minutes including an intermission. Due to mature content, The Jungle is recommended for ages 12+. This production contains smoke effects, flashing lights, herbal cigarette smoking, flour, strong language, loud noises, and gunshot sounds.
