The Jungle Tickets
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 Café, and experience the intense, moving and uplifting encounters between refugees from many different countries and the volunteers who arrived from the UK.

The Jungle "devastatingly brilliant"
I see many shows as a writer. Ordinarily, I scribble down notes on the play and mentally compose paragraphs whilst my eyes zoom in on actors catching my attention, ready to piece it all together when I leave the theatre.
