2017-04-27 19:30:002017-04-27 19:30:00America/ChicagoVietgoneMixed Blood presents the Regional Premiere of Qui Nguyen’s sexy and hilarious VIETGONE! A brilliant mash-up of comic book aesthetics, martial arts, and hip-hop. Mixed Blood Theatre is proud to announce the final show in its 2016/2017 Season, VIETGONE. In VIETGONE, award winning pioneer of “geek theater” Qui Nguyen brilliantly chronicles the love story of his parents meeting in an Arkansas refugee center after fleeing Vietnam during the fall of Saigon in 1975. The playwright’s journey to understand his parents’ immigrant love story in the wake of war and loss is marked by wit, unrepeatable curses, and a comic book sensibility that ultimately packs an unexpected emotional punch. It’s is a buddy story, a proto-feminist tale, an all-American romance, and a motorcycle road trip adventure that 40 years later revisits how we think about the Vietnam War and its heroes and victims.
