Welcome to the Jungle: a camp of stateless citizens outside Calais, France, the temporary home for thousands of people searching for refuge, forced to build a new society from nothing, at the crossroads of cultures and countries. Residents from Syria, Afghanistan, Sudan, and a host of other countries share their stories of loss, fear, community, and hope as they dream of crossing the English Channel to begin a new life. Framed with “poignancy and power” (The New York Times Critic’s Pick), THE JUNGLE is an extraordinary panorama of people suffering and dreaming, surviving and living, coming together in a time of crisis. Woolly teams up with Shakespeare Theatre Company to bring this immersive theatrical experience to DC, in which “theatre shakes hands with the world” (The Sunday Times).
