Opening Night: VIETGONE

Join us for the opening night of VIETGONE!

In collaboration with Company One Theatre (C1), we proudly present:

VIETGONE
by Qui Nguyen (She Kills Monsters)
Directed by Michelle Aguillon

Qui’s parents always told him they fell in love at first sight—but really, it was just a hook up. After the fall of Saigon. In a refugee camp. In Arkansas.

A kinda-true love story with a hip-hop heart, Vietgone is a hilarious ride from Marvel Studios writer Qui Nguyen, who mixes music and memory to pin down his own origin story.

Exuberantly youthful... a punch-drunk mash-up of hip-hop, road movies, sex farce and Vietnamese-American history. Oh, also kick-ass fights…” — Time Out New York

AATAB Staged Reading: This is Not a True Story

AATAB.jpg

Asian American Theatre Artists of Boston (AATAB) and API Arts Network proudly present a FREE staged reading of THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY by Preston Choi, followed by a post-show conversation at the Pao Arts Center. Light refreshments will be provided!

"The heroine of Madame Butterfly completes her tragic suicide, only to wake up trapped in a never-ending loop of her story. Then Miss Saigon is born thrusting another heroine into the deadly cycle, until a mysterious office woman throws the world out of balance. ‘This Is Not A True Story’ unravels the history of Orientalist art, theatre, and the danger of fiction becoming reality." (from New Play Exchange)

Directed by Audrey Seraphin and Michael A. Rosegrant.
