Join Immigrants Rising’s Co-Founder and Executive Director Katharine Gin, New York Times journalists Miriam Jordan and Kirk Semple, and Holly Cooper from the UC Davis Immigration Clinic for a discussion about “immigration in the Trump era” and what’s happening on our borders and in our cities, including San Francisco. The conversation will take place before the historic theater completely transforms into a refugee camp’s Afghan cafe for the West Coast debut of the celebrated new play The Jungle. “I can’t miss out on this opportunity to talk about Immigrants Rising’s work and the undocustrength and creativity I’m privileged to be surrounded by every day, even in the face of tremendous hostility” says Katharine Gin.

About The Jungle
The Jungle is a play written by the Good Chance Theatre Company founders Joe Robertson and Joe Murphy and directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin. The play premiered at the Young Vic, London, from December 7, 2017 to January 9, 2018. The story centers around the residents of the Jungle–a short-lived, self-governing society that emerged within a refugee camp in Calais, France.
“The Jungle was a reluctant home for thousands of people from all over the world. It was a place where people built temporary lives and communities formed out of necessity. People who visited asked why we built a theater in a refugee camp, but it’s always seemed clear to us that theater should be at the center of the conversation,” said Robertson and Murphy. “We’re thrilled to bring this play to West Coast audiences with its premiere at the historic Curran and look forward to sharing these timely and important stories.”
