Why See Poor Yella Rednecks: Vietgone Part 2?
Qui Nguyen's Vietgone Trilogy Continues
The American Conservatory Theater's 2019/20 season comes to an exciting close with Asian American playwright Qui Nguyen's brand new instalment of his autobiographical trilogy, which kicked off with the critically acclaimed critically acclaimed, award-winning, hip hop-infused romance 'Vietgone' in 2016. A breathtaking collision of pop culture, history, martial arts, multimedia and music, 'Poor Yella Rednecks: Vietgone Part 2' sees Nguyen collaborate with rising young Latino director Jaime Cataneda once more.
Picking up where 'Vietgone' left off, part 2 follows soul mates Tong and Quang, who met in a stateside Vietnamese refugee camp after the fall of Saigon. Now grown up and married, Tong and Quang struggle with the realities and hardships of the American Dream in rural Arkansas in the 70s - low-paying jobs, assimilation struggles and old flames reignited all threaten their happy ever after. Deeply moving and raucously funny, this fresh take on the immigrant story is given new life with relatable characters and Nguyen's trademark hip hop score.
Opening night: 1 August 2019
