Part cross-country road trip, part romantic comedy,

VIETGONE is an all-American love story about two very new Americans.

It’s 1975.

Saigon has fallen.

He lost his wife.

She lost her fiancé.

But now in a new land, they just might find each other. 


New York Times: “CRITIC'S PICK! A raucous, immensely moving comedy."


The Guardian: “★★★★... A high-energy triumph. ”

The Chicago Sun-Times: “A stimulating story of love finding a way.”

Houston Chronicle: “A transformative theatrical experience.”

Twin City Pioneer Press: “An uproariously funny and ultimately powerful romantic comedy.”
