In this high-octane comedy, Nguyen recreates (and kinda makes up) his parents’ reluctant courtship: Fresh from Saigon, they meet in an Arkansas refugee relocation camp in 1975. With pop culture, a live band, and plenty of funk-rock-punk-n-roll, "Vietgone" follows these new Americans through a bewildering land. A story full of lust and heartache, cowboys and motorcycles from a screenwriter for Marvel Studios.

Studio Theatre is Washington’s premier venue for contemporary theatre, "where local audiences will find today’s edgiest playwrights" (Variety). Studio produces the work of today’s greatest writers, augmented by occasional productions of modern classics. Studio's work is marked by its emphasis on excellence in acting and design, and the signature intimacy of its four theatres, all of which seat fewer than 225 patrons. The quality of this work has been recognized over its 38-year history by sustained community support and 60 Helen Hayes Awards for excellence in professional theatre.
