China, at the heart of the 20th Century, became a nation transformed beyond recognition. Through the eyes of one fiercely courageous family, Wild Swans takes us on a journey from the early days of Communist hope and struggle, through the chaos and confusion of Mao's Cultural Revolution, to the birth of a superpower. An astonishing human story, Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China has sold more than 13 million copies in 36 languages. This first ever stage version brings together author Jung Chang with playwright Alexandra Wood, director Sacha Wares, designer Miriam Buether and Beijing video artist Wang Gongxin.
