Vietgone, the new play by Qui Nguyen (She Kills Monsters), directed by May Adrales (Luce) just opened last night at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

The cast of Vietgone features Jon Hoche (national tour of War Horse, The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G), Jennifer Ikeda (Top Girls at MTC, Seascape),Raymond Lee (Farah Goes Bang, founding member of Four Clowns clown troupe),Samantha Quan (4 Wedding Planners, "NCIS"), and Paco Tolson(Peter and the Starcatcher at South Coast Rep, Ensemble Studio Theatre member).

A modern twist on the All-American love story, Qui Nguyen's (She Kills Monsters) new play Vietgone 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 May Adrales (Luce at LCT3) skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family's history.
