Vietgone

VIETGONE by Qui Nguyen

Directed by Jeffrey Lo

March 13 – April 14, 2019
Sacramento Premiere | 2016 Steinberg Award Winner | 2016 Tedd Schmitt Award Winner

An all-American love story about two very new Americans. It’s 1975. Saigon has fallen. He lost his wife. She lost her fiancé. But now in a new land, they just might find each other. Using his uniquely infectious style The New York Times calls “culturally savvy comedy” – and skipping back and forth from the dramatic evacuation of Saigon to the here and now – playwright Qui Nguyen gets up-close-and-personal to tell the story that led to the creation of…Qui Nguyen.

 

 

“[VIETGONE is] a HILARIOUS comedy that can move you to tears… a VERY SPECIAL theatrical experience.” Davis Enterprise

“If you want to see this unique and very worthwhile show [VIETGONE], it’s best to buy tickets in advance. Several upcoming performances are already sold out, and others will sell out shortly. Three additional performances have already been added.” Capital Public Radio

“Capital Stage has gathered a vibrant, cohesive cast and top-notch director Jeffrey Lo… What makes Vietgone so powerful is Nguyen’s way of inviting the audience to witness American culture through the eyes of immigrants.” SN&R

“Badass motorbike-riding refugees roar onto the stage and into our hearts in VIETGONE… One of the most rollicking culture clash comedies ever…”
The Mercury News

“An unlikely intermingling of family play, history play, sex farce, action flick, and cultural critique. It is overtly rollicking and sneakily moving.”
The Guardian

PERFORMANCE LENGTH: 120 Minutes, One 15 Minute Intermission
