This is among the traumatic memories from France's "Jungle" migrant camp that are being recreated on a London stage. More than a year since police swept through the squalid camp near the port of Calais, clearing out an estimated 7,000 migrants, the ordeal is captured vividly in "The Jungle," which has been playing to sellout crowds at the Young Vic Theatre.The play is the creation of two writers who set up their own theater amid the chaos in Calais, with casts including migrant actors. Murphy and co-writer Joe Robertson, both 27, set up the Good Chance Theatre in September 2015 at the heart of the Jungle, their actors performing under a secondhand geodesic dome tent.Three of the migrants who acted in Calais are now performing in "The Jungle," which lays bare the precarious and dangerous times faced by those searching desperately for a passage to Britain.
