Quotes & Highlights

“An extraordinary memoir and a harrowing narrative that rivals anything in The Last Emperor.” —The Wall Street Journal

Description

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.

The show runs 90 minutes, no intermission and is recommended for ages 12 and older.
