East West Players
presents the Los Angeles premiere of

VIETGONE

By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Jennifer Chang
Composer: Shammy Dee

October 18 – November 11, 2018

“A raucous comedy.” – The New York Times
“A wild, enjoyable ride.” – Rolling Stone

Vietgone spins a modern twist on the classic boy-meets-girl story: Quang and Tong are refugees fleeing the Vietnam War, who hook up and fall in love in a relocation camp in Arkansas. Bold, and fearless, Vietgone takes audiences on a hilariously rip-roaring ride across 1970s America with a hot soundtrack that serves up hip-hop, sass, and revolution.

Venue: David Henry Hwang Theater
120 Judge John Aiso Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Vietgone is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Generous support for this production is provided by the S. Mark Taper Foundation Endowment for East West Players.
