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
