Overview

 “Qui Nguyen’s play is an ambitious entertainment about modern identity wrapped inside an exploitation drama about what used to be called the `inscrutable Orient’. It gleefully mocks countless movies. In an impressive feat, the Vampire Cowboys become serious without giving up any of their silliness. A Critic’s Pick!”Jason Zinoman, The New York Times    “In the schizophrenic, wonderful THE INEXPLICABLE REDEMPTION OF AGENT G, the comet at long last returns, drawing Nguyen into profound meta-theatrical self-examination. He can’t stay serious for long—insights alternate with dance battles and the Vampire Cowboys’ usual barrage of inside jokes. This confusion of gravities keeps the play fascinatingly off-balance: In its very wonkiness, we feel a playwright tearing himself apart to find his own first principles.   AGENT G completes Nguyen’s GOOK TRILOGY, an attempt (beginning with TRIAL BY WATER) at telling his cousin Hung’s story…   The result is funny and weird and eye-opening.”Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
