Cambodian Rock Band

Cambodian 1200x628

Let music lead you home.

May 30 – June 28, 2020
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

Dubbed “fierce, gorgeous, and heartwarming” by the Los Angeles Times, this play (part comedy, part mystery, part rock concert) follows a young woman trying to piece together her family history 30 years after her father fled Cambodia. Featuring a cast that performs a mix of contemporary Dengue Fever hits and classic Cambodian oldies, Lauren Yee vividly brings to life the Cambodian rock scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s, a movement cut short by the Khmer Rouge’s brutal regime, which nearly erased the music (and musicians). A story about survivors, the resilient bond of family, and the enduring power of music.

A co-production with La Jolla Playhouse and Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
