With minimal resources in the squalid, sprawling landfill-turned-makeshift-camp, immigrants and committed volunteers built a warm, self-governing society—with restaurants, shops, a school, a church, a sauna!—from nothing. With the fervent hope that this short-term society would be remembered in all its complexity, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson wrote The Jungle after going to Calais and constructing a theater in a geodesic dome they called the Good Chance Dome. The original dome will travel with the set to St. Ann’s. Directed by Stephen Daldry (The Crown, The Inheritance) and Justin Martin (The Crown, Prima Facie), the play invites the audience inside a faithfully replicated Afghan restaurant where endless cycles of survival and threat, failed social contracts, creative thought and action and acts of compassion unfold.
