Unicorn Theatre has announced the cast and creative team for Qui Nguyen’s VIETGONE, directed by Producing Artistic Director Cynthia Levin.
The cast includes Vi Tran (Quang), Ai Vy Bui (Tong), Andi Meyer (Huong), Eric Palmquist (Nhan), and Sean Yeung (Bobby).
The design team includes Emily Swenson (Scenic Designer), Victor En Yu Tan (Lighting Designer), Gretchen Halle (Costume Designer), Alex Davila (Projections Designer), Jon Robertson (Sound Designer), Amanda Dawson (Dramaturg), Tanya Brown (Stage Manager), Eric Palmquist (Properties Designer), and Courtney Dozier (Sound Board Operator).
From the press release: “Award-winning pioneer playwright Qui Nguyen brilliantly chronicles the love story of his parents’ meeting in an Arkansas refugee center after fleeing Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975. It’s a buddy story, an all-American romance, and a motorcycle road-trip adventure that reexamines how we think about the heroes and victims of the Vietnam War. Vietgone skips through time and roams the globe with snarky humor, hip-hop, and lots of sex. It’s one ironic, foul-mouthed, bad-ass new play.”
VIETGONE runs April 18th to May 13th, 2018. For more information visit unicorntheatre.org.
