The Jungle West Coast Premiere Releases New Trailer

Good Chance Theatre's immersive play about the bulldozed refugee camp in Calais will open at San Francisco's Curran.

San Francisco's Curran has released a brand-new trailer for the West Coast premiere of the Good Chance Theatre, National Theatre, and Young Vic production of The Jungle, set to run March 26-May 19, with an official opening on April 4.

The Jungle, written by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, and directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin, is described as follows: "Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle — the short-lived, self-governing society that emerged within a sprawling refugee camp in Calais, France. Join the residents over freshly baked naan and sweet milky chai at the Afghan Café. Take a seat where men, women and children fleeing war and persecution created a world offering warm hospitality, amidst squalor and danger."

The cast includes Moe Bar-El, Lorraine Bruce, Alexander Devrient, Ammar Haj Ahmad, Tommy Letts, Catherine Luedtke, Trevor Fox, Yasin Moradi, Jonathan Nyati, John Pfumojena, Zara Rasti, Rachel Redford, Ibrahim Renno, Dominic Rowan, Rachid Sabitri, Mohamed Sarrar, Milan Tajmiri, Bisserat Tseggai, Ben Turner, Nahel Tzegai, Tim Wright, and Khaled Zahabi.

St. Ann's Warehouse presented the US premiere of The Jungle in December 2018 following a production at London's Young Vic. The play was also mounted at London's Playhouse Theatre on the West End.
