The Young Vic’s David Lan on staging Wild Swans

20th April 2012


The artistic director of the Young Vic talks to Mary Mazzilli about the making of Wild Swans, the first stage adaptation of the 1991 best-selling autobiography by Chinese-born writer Jung Chang. The stage version — part of World Stage season — is written by Alexandra Wood and directed by Sacha Wares. Recorded at the Young Vic, 12 April 2012.

Wild Swans is a very powerful story, a very individual piece of work that remarkably reflects the book and that understands China.
