Michael Golamco's Year Zero, about a suddenly-motherless Cambodian-American teen, makes its New York premiere at Second Stage Theatre Uptown.
Year Zero centers on "Vuthy Vichea, a 16-year-old Cambodian American who wears thick glasses, loves hip hop, and plays Dungeons and Dragons. After his mother's death, Vuthy and his sister Ra struggle to reinvent themselves in Long Beach, CA, where being different can be deadly." Will Frears directs a cast featuring Mason Lee, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Peter Kim and Maureen Sebastian.
Here is a first look at the work:
