Regional Premiere by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Mark Valdez
April 10-30, 2017
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 is 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.
