weak script, felt Jenny Chin really didn't get into the heart and soul of her character, her brother's portrayal of the character wasn't consistent....I really wouldn't recommend this play when there are so many other good options right now.
A world premiere
By Michael Golamco
Directed by Andrea J. Dymond
Vuthy Vichea is a 16-year-old Cambodian American. He loves hip-hop and Dungeons and Dragons. He is a weird kid in a place where weirdness can be fatal: Long Beach, California. And since his best friend moved and his mother died, the only person he can talk to is a human skull he keeps hidden in a cookie jar.
Sharp, funny, and packing an emotional wallop, Year Zero is a witty family drama that is a perfect fit for Victory Gardens' first world premiere in their new Studio Theater.
Since becoming a finalist last spring in Victory Gardens' Ignition Festival, playwright Michael Golamco has been selected to become a member of New Dramatists, and has been awarded a playwriting commission by South Coast Rep. Year Zero also won the Grand Prize of Chicago Dramatists' Many Voices Project in 2008. His earlier play Cowboy Versus Samurai was produced eight times after its New York premiere, including in Canada and Hong Kong, and was published in the Smith and Kraus anthology New Playwrights: Best Plays of 2006.
