About Poor Yella Rednecks:

From the author of Vietgone comes 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. Filled with infectious music and unexpected humor, Poor Yella Rednecks is the next chapter in this highly entertaining and moving tale.
