The Jungle USA - 2.0!

“Great is the hope that makes man cross borders. Great is the hope that keeps us alive.”

THE JUNGLE returns for their second US tour beginning with St Ann’s Warehouse, Brooklyn NYC on February 18 - March 19 before transferring to Washington DC’s Shakespeare Theatre Company playing in Harman Hall between March 28 - April 16 2023.

Welcome to The Jungle where cultures collide and thousands dream of crossing the English Channel to the possibility of freedom. Laughter, tears, allegiances, and prayers are shared by this extraordinary community of refugees caught up in a global crisis beyond their control.
