Presented by CPT

“Hats off to the CPT for this fine show, well researched and coming from a place of great passion… Comm­unity theatre at its most effective” – Camden New Journal, May 16th, 2019

How do you excavate 63,000 bodies? Where will they go? And what will be uncovered by all this digging?

In St James’ Gardens, right on CPT’s doorstep, the biggest exhumation of graves in European history is taking place. Parks and pubs are closing, too. People are losing their homes and businesses. All to make way for HS2’s new railway terminal.

“We late-lamented, resting here, / Are mixed to human jam”

CPT’s epic new docu-theatre event digs deep into a small but stubborn community, an £80bn infrastructure project – and the ghosts of Euston past.

Supported by the Birkbeck Public Engagement Seed Fund.

Please note the performance on Tuesday 14th March will be BSL interpreted.

“Among the many wonderful qualities of Human Jam is its capacity to inspire care, having been made with such care itself: for humans, for craft, for detail, for the complexity of social interconnection…” – Exeunt

“A multi-faceted, thought-provoking reminder to fight for those freedoms we take for granted … brought to life with passion, warmth and humour” – ★★★  The Spy in the Stalls

“Such focus. Such heart. Such character. And so much to lose.”The Guardian

“Necessary, informative and vivid.”The Observer

“It is no exaggeration to say that we feel like Camden residents and share in their anger, upset and frustration. More than that though, we leave with the rare sense of a shared experience of human unity”The Upcoming
