A dramatic comedy with music by Lauren Yee, featuring songs by Dengue Fever

May 5 - 15

Discover Cambodia’s lost surf rock scene through the eyes of a young Cambodian American woman and her father. This thrilling story toggles back and forth in time, as father and daughter face the music of the past. Featuring actor/musicians, playwright Lauren Yee brings to vivid life the Cambodian rock scene of the 60s and 70s, a movement cut short by the Khmer Rouge’s brutal attempt to erase the music (and  musicians) once and for all.

 

“A fierce, gorgeous, heartwarming, comedic fairy  tale … Yee has made her characters so joyfully and  ridiculously human that it’s impossible not to  identify with them.” —The Los Angeles Times
