Poor Yella Rednecks: Vietgone Part 2—Canceled
The Geary Theater
Updated March 20, 2020: The remaining two productions in the 2019/20 Season, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show and Qui Nguyen’s Poor Yella Rednecks: Vietgone Part 2—in addition to any in-person training and education programs through June, as well as special events—have been canceled.
Playwright Qui Nguyen returns to A.C.T. for the second chapter in his hip-hop trilogy about a Vietnamese family who swap war-torn Saigon for rural ’70s Arkansas. Lovers Tong and Quang are now married, but with low-wage jobs, a son struggling with English and rumors of old flames, the challenges are only beginning. Funny, invigorating and subversive, Poor Yella Rednecks confirms Nguyen as a groundbreaking playwright of the new American story.
