On Monday, 8th February, they will perform to Libyan migrants at the Salesian Theatre in Malta.

The tour started on 23rd April, 2015 and will finish on the same date this year - the day William Shakespeare's birth and death is celebrated.

Dominic Dromgoole, artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe, said: “This performance will be yet another wonderful example of this ground-breaking tour’s ability to reach displaced people across the world.

"It’s a privilege that our company have been able to perform in the Calais Jungle and our thanks go to Good Chance for enabling this.”

Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, artistic directors of Good Chance, said: “We are delighted to welcome Shakespeare’s Globe’s to the Jungle.

"As a production which has travelled to audiences all over the world, it is fitting that it visits the camp here in Calais, where the fault lines of over 20 different nations meet.

"The Good Chance Theatre welcomes people of all ages and nationalities to share in the different cultures and traditions that provide the only positive aspect of this situation.

"The production is a message of solidarity with the people here, and testament to the power of theatre to unite."

The tour was granted UNESCO patronage for its engagement with local communities and its promotion of cultural education.
