Wild Swans

China at the heart of the 20th Century. 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 has sold 13 million copies in 36 languages, making it the best-selling non-fiction book in British publishing history.

This first ever stage version brings together Jung Chang with playwright Alexandra Wood, director Sacha Wares, designer Miriam Buether and Beijing video artist Wang GongXin.

Based on a novel by Jung Chang, adapted by Alexandra Wood.

A Young Vic/American Repertory Theater/Actors Touring Company co-production.
