Patrice Chereau's production of I Am the Wind opened last night (10 May 2011, previews from 26 April) at the Young Vic. Written by Norwegian playwright Jon Fosse and adapted by Simon Stephens, the play stars Tom Brooke and John Laskey.

Chereau, whose work has not been seen on the London stage since La Dispute in 1974, takes Brooke and Laskey on a journey out to sea, as the two men set sail looking for coves and stop-offs and then alarmingly make the decision to set out to sea.

I Am the Wind, which marks the first production French director Chereau has originated in the UK, continues at the Young Vic until 21 May before touring to Paris, Vienna, Lyon, Barcelona and Avignon this summer.
