Born in the USA (Leaving Vietnam)


Andy Jordan Productions with Richard Vergette (UK)

Trump’s populist slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ appeals to disillusioned war veteran Jimmy in rustbelt Michigan but his new-found politics threaten to tear his family apart – until an unexpected visit leads to a profound emotional reconciliation. Original, humorous, intensely moving storytelling, redemptive and hopeful, about overcoming trauma, and having to face it to overcome it. From award-winning actor-playwright Richard Vergette.

‘Multi-layered and masterful’ (HackneyCitizen.co.uk).

‘An excellent storyteller’ (BritishTheatreGuide.info).

‘Compelling, heart-wrenching… gripping piece of new theatre writing that should be experienced by all generations’ (FringeReview.co.uk).

‘Extraordinary tour-de-force… uplifting and devastating in equal measure’ (TheReviewsHub.com).
