Vietgone

by Qui Nguyen

A modern twist on the All-American love story, Vietgone pulses with contemporary energy. It’s the classic boy meets girl – except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War newly settled in a relocation camp in Fort Chaffee, Arkansas. Borrowing from up-to-the-minute popular culture to recreate the playwright’s own parents’ meeting, Vietgone ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama, skipping through time and around the globe. Fresh from its acclaimed 2017 New York debut — and written by an Arkansas native — Vietgone presents a fresh theatrical take on one real family’s history. 

Directed by Kholoud Sawaf

2 hours, 15 minutes including a 15-minute intermission.

Recommended for 13+. Contains strong adult language and themes; stage violence; loud noises including battlefield sounds; smoke, fog, and haze. 

A raucous, immensely moving comedy with a fresh, impish voice.
