Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 4/9/19 RUN DATES: 3/30/19 - 4/24/19 VENUE: South Coast Rep Vietnam was a sore spot in American history. “Vietgone” was a bright spot in theater creativity. Now, along comes its sequel, “Poor Yella Rednecks,” having its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa. Once again, the playwright (actually Qui Nguyen, but onstage, an actorly stand-in for him) introduces the piece and promises that these characters are all completely fictional.
