Lauren Yee’s Cambodian Rock Band Premieres West Coast
Ma-Yi Writers Lab Member Lauren Yee’s new play, Cambodian Rock Band with music by Dengue Fever and directed by Chay Yew begins at the JULIANNE ARGYROS STAGE
March 4, 2018 – March 25, 2018 at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, CA.
Part comedy, part mystery, part rock concert, this thrilling story toggles back and forth in time, as father and daughter face the music of the past. Neary, a young Cambodian American has found evidence that could finally put away the Khmer Rouge’s chief henchman. But her work is far from done. When Dad shows up unannounced—his first return to Cambodia since fleeing 30 years ago—it’s clear this isn’t just a pleasure trip.
This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award
