Two British playwrights have created a theatre in a Calais migrant camp to give people a place to reflect that is ‘open to all’.

The done-shaped tent created has been dubbed the Good Chance Theatre, and will be home to anything creative, including writing workshops, and drama, singing and poetry events. There are also plans to have weekly productions created by migrants at the venue.

Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, the founders of the theatre, explain the motivations behind starting the Good Chance Theatre in a YouTube video. You can also see the theatre and the impact it is having on people in the video – watch it below:
