Poor Yella Rednecks (Off-Broadway, New York City Center, 2023) | Playbill

Poor Yella Rednecks


Produced by Manhattan Theatre Club

SYNOPSIS: 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.
