Vietgone

Regional Premiere by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Mark Valdez

April 10-30, 2017

 

FINAL WEEK!

JUST ADDED: Performance on Saturday, April 29 at 4pm

Featuring Sun Mee Chomet, David Huynh, Meghan Kreidler, Flordelino Lagundino, and Sherwin Resurreccion

In Vietgone, award winning pioneer of “geek theater” Qui Nguyen brilliantly chronicles the love story of his parents meeting in an Arkansas refugee center after fleeing Vietnam during the fall of Saigon in 1975. The playwright’s journey to understand his parents’ immigrant love story in the wake of war and loss is marked by wit, unrepeatable curses, and a comic book sensibility that ultimately packs an unexpected emotional punch. It’s a buddy story, a proto-feminist tale, an all-American romance, and a motorcycle road trip adventure that 40 years later revisits how we think about the heroes and victims of the Vietnam War.

Directed by Mark Valdez (DJ Latinidad’s Latino Dance Party, Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World), Vietgone skips through time and roams the globe with humor, hip-hop, and lots of sex. It is a play for our time; it reflects the sensibilities of our present-day culture, it's ironic, snarky, foul-mouthed, and bad-ass.

Vietgone contains strong profanity, sexual content, and drug use.

VIETGONE

10 de abril - 30 de abril de 2017

En Vietgone, el galardonado pionero del “teatro geek”, Qui Nguyen cuenta la historia de amor de sus padres que se conocieron en un centro para refugiados en Arkansas tras haber huido de Vietnam durante la caída de Saigón en 1975. El dramaturgo se embarca en un viaje para entender la historia de amor de sus padres como inmigrantes y lo hace con ingenio, palabrotas irrepetibles y una sensibilidad de historieta que asesta un golpe emocional inesperado. Es una historia de camaradería, un cuento feminista, una historia de amor, y un viaje en motocicleta que nos hace reconsiderar lo que pensamos de los héroes y las víctimas de la Guerra de Vietnam. Vietgone salta en el tiempo y camina por el mundo con humor, hip hop y mucho sexo.

Director Mark Valdez: “En un momento en el que el debate sobre la inmigración sigue caldeándose y el mundo trata de encontrar soluciones a la crisis global de los refugiados, el dramaturgo Qui Nguyen pone eso de lado y en su lugar nos entrega una historia de amor - la historia de sus padres - y al hacerlo, crea una obra que adquiere una mayor resonancia política, ya que, ¿qué es más urgente que el amor? Y no es que se trate de una historia de amor común y corriente, es específicamente la historia de estos dos vietnamitas, que huyen de su tierra natal como consecuencia de la Guerra de Vietnam. Sin embargo, con frecuencia, sus esfuerzos y dificultades nos hacen llorar lágrimas de risa y no de tristeza.
