After a sold-out run at the Young Vic, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson’s production of THE JUNGLE has transferred to the Playhouse Theatre in the West End. Catch Mohammad Amiri and Elham Ehsas in this highly acclaimed and topical production for a strictly limited season, to 3rd November 2018.
It’s a hot, humid summer in 1958. Tempers are flaring and Teddy Boys are on the march. Jamaican couple Pearl and George are helping Caribbean migrants to cut loose at their Shebeen – a forbidden party where drinks flow, music plays, food is plentiful, and carefree attitudes roam.
On a night fuelled by rum, calypso and dancing, the Shebeen is under threat from the police, and as tensions build everyone is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths.
Inspired by the Windrush generation and set in the writer’s hometown of Nottingham, Shebeen shines a light on a community under siege.
