The world premiere of Christmas in Hanoi follows a mixed-race family as they return to Vietnam for the first time since the war. One year after the death of their strong-willed mother, siblings Winnie and Lou travel with their Irish-Catholic father and Vietnamese grandfather to reconnect with their roots in Vietnam. Whether they embrace that past or reject it, they are haunted by their family’s ghosts and by the phantoms of Vietnam’s long history. Christmas in Hanoi is the winner of East West Players’s Face of the Future playwriting competition, highlighting writer Eddie Borey’s emerging talent for exploring the complexities in a family history that spans multiple cultures and generations.
