Due to the vast fan base of IP-protected novels, films, TV dramas and stage plays adapted from these novels have become a booming trend in recent years, and fans are a key factor not only for the success but also failure of these works. Works adapted from IP-protected novels are widely criticised mainly for their lack of authenticity and poor character design. Moreover, no foreign work can be represented satisfactorily on the stage if it is adapted without a deep understanding of the local culture and mindset. In this talk, Da Cao, Ma Guanying and Liu Baichen from the creative team will share their experiences and insights on reading, adapting and staging the national tour for The Miracles of the Namiya General Store.
