Queensland Theatre Vietgone
A WILD ROAD-TRIP ROMANCE THROUGH THE HEARTLAND OF AMERICA
Saigon has fallen. Helicopter pilot Quang and strongwilled Tong have both narrowly escaped the end of the Vietnam War and find themselves in a new and deeply strange country.
Thrown together in the arrival camp in Arkansas, they must navigate a mystifying dustland of rednecks, bikers, hippies and cowboys. Tong wants to make a fresh start in the land of opportunity, while Quang just wants to get home. But what if the spark growing between them was to ignite?
With its in-your-face ninja action and pulse-pounding hip-hop music, Qui Nguyen’s Vietgone is an inventive and genre-bending live-action theatrical cartoon — an irreverent, pulp fiction-style take on the love story that may (or may not) have led to his own birth.
This perfect finale to 2023 will be co-directed by Daniel Evans and Ngọc Phan on the Playhouse stage at QPAC. Cue the glitter cannon.
