Poor Yella Rednecks

After being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Manhattan Theatre Club continues its 2022-23 Off-Broadway season with the New York premiere of Poor Yella Rednecks, written by Qui Nguyen and directed by May Adrales. Check back to see when Poor Yella Rednecks tickets will be on sale.

The author of the acclaimed Vietgone returns to MTC with the second play of his autobiographical trilogy about an immigrant family’s bumpy road to the American dream.  Told from the mother’s perspective, Poor Yella Rednecks is the story of a young family’s attempt to put down roots in Arkansas, a place as different from Vietnam as it gets. The production, filled with infectious music and unexpected humor, will reunite Qui Nguyen with director May Adrales for the next chapter in this highly entertaining and moving tale. 

Performances are staged at New York City Center's Stage I.
