North Korean escape story

You for Me For You is the title of a new play that is premiering at London's Royal Court Theatre this week. Written by Korean-American playwright Mia Chung, the story follows two starving North Korean sisters who try to escape the country. One makes it to America, the other does not. Weekend's Nuala McGovern has been speaking to Mia about the techniques she used to tell the story of a place she's never been. But first, an extract from the play:
