Following critically-acclaimed runs on London’s West End (currently playing) and at the Young Vic last December, The Jungle transforms St. Ann’s Warehouse this Winter.
This is the place where people suffered and dreamed. Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of the Jungle – a sprawling refugee camp in Northern France. The Jungle tells stories of loss, fear, community and hope, of the Calais camp’s creation – and of its eventual destruction. Take a seat inside the vibrant and bustling Afghan Café and experience the intense, moving and uplifting encounters between refugees from many different countries and the volunteers who arrived from the UK to help them.
Extraordinary & heart-stopping. This Jungle is vivid and complex in its portrayal of human resilience in the face of humanitarian catastrophe. It celebrates the human capacity to build something out of nothing, to work together and try to make a difference.

Urgency, vividness and wit. The play’s sense of the knottiness of world politics makes this a remarkable evening... Miriam Buether’s set is a triumph...
Exuberant, full of music and movement. This is a story we need to hear. It feels of national significance.

You’re left awed and appalled by the testimonies of the ordeals endured. It’s warts and all – and that’s the beauty of it.
Brimful of hope, humour and humanity
