About Poor Yella Rednecks

After the rollicking success of "Vietgone" (2018) at A.C.T.'s Strand Theater, playwright Qui Nguyen returns to San Francisco for the second chapter in his kickass, 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.

Nguyen reunites with director Jaime Castañeda to draw from rap, leap into martial arts, and dig deep into his own family journey. Funny, sexy, and subversive, "Poor Yella Rednecks" confirms Nguyen as a groundbreaking playwright of the new American story.

This production contains smoking, loud noises, frequent strong language, partial nudity, and mature themes.
