A modern twist on the All-American love story, Qui Nguyen's ("She Kills Monsters") new play pulses with contemporary energy. It's the classic story of boy meets girl - except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War newly settled in a relocation camp inside Middle America. Borrowing elements from the world of up-to-the-minute popular culture to recreate the playwright's own parents' meeting, "Vietgone" ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama. Nguyen and director Lavina Jadhwani skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family's history.
