Providing mental health and wellbeing support to ‘The Jungle’

We are excited to announce that we are providing mental health and wellbeing support to the company of Good Chance Theatre’s production of the ‘The Jungle’, which is rehearsing in London before moving to New York and Washington where it will run until April 2023.

Directed by Stephen Daldry and Justin Martin, The Jungle tells stories of loss, fear, community and hope, of the Calais camp’s creation – and of its eventual destruction.

Our support will ensure that every member of the company is given access to 1:1 counselling with our diverse range of Counsellors, whilst our regular visits to the rehearsal rooms both in London and New York will mean that we are also able to provide ‘on the ground’ support to everyone involved in the production.

“As part of our ongoing, deep commitment to the mental wellbeing of everyone we work with, we are proud to be linking up with Wellbeing in the Arts on The Jungle as our Mental Health Support Partner. They will be working with us to provide confidential support to all company members as the show rehearses and tours to the US. We are really excited to begin this new partnership and feel confident it will give everyone involved the support needed.” Sophie Ignatieff, Good Chance Producer.

Founder and CEO of Wellbeing in the Arts, Adam Bambrough, said “We are delighted to be working with Good Chance Theatre to support the company of The Jungle, its a show that demonstrates the capability of theatre to tackle difficult issues in society, but in doing so, demands a lot from those who are helping to tell the story. We applaud the team at Good Chance for putting in place such a comprehensive package of support for the whole company in recognition of this”.
