Following universal critical acclaim, and direct from a sold-out run at the Young Vic. The Jungle, transfers to THE PLAYHOUSE THEATRE in London's West End this summer!

Ben continues as the role of 'SALAR' - Afghan Flag Restaurant Owner


This is the place where people suffered and dreamed. Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle– just across the Channel, right on our doorstep. 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 from many different countries and the volunteers who arrived from the UK.

Experience the Playhouse Theatre as never before, as the venue undergoes an extraordinary transformation to recreate the intimate in-the-round staging of Miriam Buether’s critically-acclaimed Young Vic design. Audiences are invited to choose from two unique experiences: take a seat at the benches and tables of the vibrant and bustling Afghan Café at the heart of the Calais Jungle, or watch from the Dress Circle, overlooking the dynamic performance space below. Wherever you sit, prepare to be transported into the world of the Calais camp, where a community forged from necessity shares its unimaginable stories of hope against all odds.

★★★★★ ‘An immersive, p
