A message from Stephen Daldry, Chair, Good Chance Theatre
In 2015 two young British playwrights went to the unofficial refugee camp in Calais to bear witness to an unfolding humanitarian crisis. They spent a week there and decided they wanted to build a theatre…
The first Good Chance theatre dome was built on the belief that yes, refugees need clean water, they need basic food and they need medical supplies… but they also need a space to think, they need to hope and they need to dream. The company has come a long way in three years but the founding principle that ‘expression is a human right’ underpins everything we do.
Through shows like The Jungle, Good Chance bring previously untold stories of global relevance to international audiences. Meanwhile our theatres of hope provide places where people from different parts of the world who have been through incredible trauma, can be together and be welcome.
This company’s ambition is thrilling, its mission both urgent and vitally important in these divided times. But we can only do it with your support.
Please make a donation and help us to extend our work with artists, audiences and people across the world. We believe everyone deserves a good chance, help us to give it.
