“A raucous, immensely moving comedy.”
– The New York Times
Critics’ pick! The New York Times, Time Out New York and LA Times
Bubbling with infectious energy, this rap-spitting, pop culture-crusted dramedy is an ode to the real-life courtship of Playwright Qui Nguyen’s parents. Forced to leave their country during the height of the Vietnam War, two refugees find themselves at the same relocation camp in Arkansas – the land of Harleys, hot dogs and “howdy!” Before they find their way into each other’s arms, they’ll have to blaze a trail in their weird new world and leave behind the baggage they didn’t pack.
Jump on this emotional ride for an adventure that hums with excitement as it hops across time and around the globe through the highs and lows of love.

- “What was that, exactly? I’m not sure. But whatever it was, it was pretty great… a tri-hop sensation that will stay with me for a while. Vietgone is a wild ride and a great way for the Denver Center Theater Company to kick off its fortieth season. Don’t miss it.” – Vail Daily
- “Vietgone is a swift, sad, crazed and funny love story.” – Westword
