Don’t miss this new play from one of the hottest playwrights in America!
A world premiere commission from the acclaimed playwright of Cambodian Rock Band.
With David Bowie blaring from a mixtape, Young Americans takes us on two identical road trips, 20 years apart. An exhaustingly upbeat father and his stressed out college-aged daughter drive cross-country from DC to Portland; a journey that mirrors the one he took decades earlier as a new immigrant full of fresh hopes and dreams. This intimate comedy veers back and forth in time, as Yee explores what home and belonging mean to those in transition.
A co-production with Merrimack Repertory Theatre.
Yee’s work has been hailed as “gleefully irreverent,” “whip-smart and very funny,” “wildly inventive,” and “courageous.”
