The Shakespeare's Globe group has performed Hamlet in the Calais jungle - check out some scenes from the show.


The performance was part of their Globe to Globe tour, which started in April 2014. 
It was a one-off show, attended by dozens of migrants who call the Calais camp home. The viewers were given popcorn, as well as a synopsis of the show that had been translated into several languages.
It was performed in partnership the Good Chance Calais team, a volunteer group that has created what it calls "a theatre of hope" in the refugee camp.
See some of the scenes from the show below. 
The New Jungle camp in Calais is home to around 4,000 refugees, most of whom hope to cross the Channel to the UK.
