South Coast Repertory Theatre: Poor Yella Rednecks

South Coast Repertory Theatre: Poor Yella Rednecks

by ​​Qui Nguyen
directed by ​​May Adrales

In the award-winning Vietgone, Qui Nguyen recounted his parents’ hot and hilarious courtship in a Vietnamese refugee camp in 1975. Now, six years later, Tong and Quang are building new lives in a foreign land called Arkansas. But marriage is hard – especially when she’s having doubts and his first one isn’t over yet. One family’s history makes for a raucously funny, deeply moving take on the immigrant story, told with hip-hop style.
