February 21 – April 29, 2018
A.C.T.’s Strand Theater
1127 Market Street

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes, including one intermission


Bold, vivid, and utterly fresh, Vietgone is an irreverent new comedy from one of American theater’s most innovative and lauded new playwrights. In this contemporary twist on the classic story of boy meets girl, three young Vietnamese immigrants leave their war-torn country for an eye-opening road trip across the bewildering and foreign landscape of 1970s America.

A vibrant mash-up of audacious language, pop-culture references, and kick-ass romance, Vietgone is an action-packed road trip that shifts gears instantaneously from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama.

Following sold-out houses at Oregon Shakespeare Festival and New York’s Manhattan Theatre Club, this sexy, sassy, freewheeling ride, backed by original hip-hop rhythms, will roll into The Strand in an all-new production this February.

Please note: This production includes strong language, a short strobe-like lighting effect, herbal cigarettes, loud explosions, and gunshots.
