by Qui Nguyen
directed by May Adrales
produced in association with Oregon Shakespeare Festival
It’s 1975. Saigon has fallen; the war’s ending; and two hot, young Vietnamese immigrants flee to the United States to pursue their dreams. American English and the refugee camps kinda suck, but the wild, action-packed road trip they take across the USofA totally rocks. This new (and, OK, somewhat made-up) story about playwright Qui Nguyen’s parents is not a story about war. It’s a story about falling in love.
