Good Morning, Viet Mom

Written & Performed by Franco Nguyen

A Cohoots Theatre Production
Co-presented by One Yellow Rabbit and Lunchbox Theatre

As a young filmmaker, Franco Nguyen goes to Vietnam looking for inspiration for his first feature film and finds an unexpected subject – his mom.  Authentic and irreverent, Nguyen delves into the personal, sharing stories about visiting Vietnam for the first time and being re-introduced to the mother he thought he knew.  A hilarious and heartfelt story about family, history and love.
