VIRTUAL READING SERIES: Amputees by Quentin Nguyen-Duy
AATAB Online | 7PM - 9:30PM

Join theatre artists from the AATAB community, the Boston theatre community, and friends across the country that are now virtually available, to explore a play in development by a Boston-based Asian American playwright, and experiment with how we can become even more creative storytellers through Zoom!

SYNOPSIS: First-generation Vietnamese-American Sam Nguyen is home for the Holidays. In hopes of reassembling the family, his father, Vietnamese-born Phuong Nguyen, calls for a reunion to celebrate the family’s “Asian LunarMas” — a hybridized creation which binds the Vietnamese Tết with the Western celebration of Christmas. Forced to rekindle his relationship with his schizoaffective brother and estranged mother, Sam seeks to find the origins of his family’s trauma in his father’s past. Flashing back-and-forth between 2018 Ohio, and 1975 Saigon, ​Amputees explores the heritability of trauma, the hilariousness of growing up between cultures, and the hyperbolic ridiculousness of family.
