Good Chance builds temporary theatres of hope promoting freedom of expression, creativity and dignity for everyone. Founded by two British playwrights, Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, Good Chance established its first temporary theatre space, an 11m geodesic dome, in the heart of the refugee and migrant camp in Calais in September 2015. After seven months in Calais, the theatre travelled to London’s Southbank for a nine-day festival of introductions led by refugees in July 2016. At the start of 2017, Good Chance began working in Paris starting with a five-week residence at La Station, Gare de Mines, in collaboration with Collectif MU and Emmaüs Solidarité. From here, the Good Chance dome travelled to the gardens of Theatre de la Ville for the duration of the Chantiers d'Europe Festival. Good Chance is an Associate Company of the Young Vic Theatre and recipient of the Evening Standard Editor’s Award (2016), an Empty Space Peter Brook Award (2017), and was nominated for Index on Censorship, Freedom of Expression Award. Good Chance will present The Jungle, a new play written by Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, directed by Stephen Daldry, at the Young Vic Theatre this December, a co-production with the Young Vic and National Theatre.
