Ben has joined the cast of 'THE JUNGLE' based on the refugees of Calais camp, France and their journeys.

He will star as the role of 'SALAR' - Afghan Café. restaurant owner.

This new play to hit the stage will recreate the theatre - The Stalls have been transferred into the Afghan Flag cafe, in which audience members are involved in the story and watch the action happen right in front of their eyes. Sitting around the stage. The upper circle has been transformed into the 'Cliffs of Dover' giving audience members a birds eye view of the stage.

"This is the place people suffered and dreamed."

Okot wants nothing more than to get to the UK. Beth wants nothing more than to help him.

Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of “The Jungle”– just across the Channel, right on our doorstep.
