Orwell's 'Animal Farm' Travels to China

A play based on George Orwell's anti-Stalinist novel Animal Farm is on stage in China, where it takes on anti-Maoist overtones. But much of the audience seems more impressed with the robust production than the politics of the work. NPR's Rob Gifford reports.
