The British Council in the USA is pleased to partner with St. Ann's Warehouse to bring The Jungle to the United States.
Following universal critical acclaim and a sold-out run at the Young Vic, The Jungle transferred to the West End this summer. The British Council in the USA is proud to bring The Jungle to the United States this winter, in partnership with St. Ann's Warehouse.
About the show
This is the place where people suffered and dreamed. Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle – just across the English Channel from the UK. 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 and volunteers from many different countries.
Event and ticket information
The Jungle will be performed at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY from 4 December 2018 - 27 January 2019. Tickets are now available on the St. Ann's Warehouse website.
