      FRINGE FESTIVAL: AMPUTEES

      Presented by Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre The BU Fall Fringe Festival, now in its 23nd season, is a collaboration between the College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre. The festival’s mission is to produce new or rarely performed significant works in the opera and theatre repertoire, bringing performers and audiences together in unique theatrical settings. BU NEW PLAY INITIATIVE: AMPUTEES A production of the BU School of Theatre By Quentin Nguyen-Duy Directed by Sarah Shin (CFA’19) Sam Nguyen is home for winter break from his first year of college.  Determined to write a prize-winning essay, Sam attempts to retrace his father’s journey from Vietnam to the United States.  A simple task becomes complicated when injuries of the past become inseparable from those of the present.  Through flashbacks of the Vietnam War, exposure therapy, and failed encounters with online dating apps, AMPUTEES explores the cards we’ve been dealt since birth. A Playwrights’ Project production as part BU School of Theatre’s New Play Initiative.
