A modern twist on the All-American love story, Qui Nguyen’s (She Kills Monsters) new play Vietgone pulses with contemporary energy. It’s the classic story of boy meets girl – except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War newly settled in a relocation camp inside Middle America. Borrowing elements from the world of up-to-the-minute popular culture to recreate the playwright’s own parents’ meeting, Vietgone ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama. Nguyen and director May Adrales (Luce) skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family’s history.
Running Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes, with 1 intermission
Vietgone is produced in association with South Coast Repertory.
The cast of Vietgone features Jon Hoche, Jennifer Ikeda, Raymond Lee, Samantha Quan and Paco Tolson. For further information about the play, including tickets, go here and visit the Manhattan Theatre Club website.
