Oct. 2-Nov. 27, 2016: Vietgone, a play by Qui Nguyen, at Manhattan Theatre Club

Monday, Oct 17, 2016


is a modern twist on the all-American love story by playwright Qui Nguyen (She Kills Monsters). It's the classic story of boy meets girl--except it takes place in a relocation camp inside Middle America. Vietgone ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama. Nguyen and director May Adrales (Luce at LCT3) skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family's history.
