Leaving Vietnam

Author(s): Richard Vergette
Company: Andy Jordan Productions in association with Park Theatre
Running time: 1h 10min approx
Age recommendation: 12+

Jimmy Vandenberg, a decorated Vietnam war veteran, works alone in his garage servicing the classic American cars of his youth while struggling to forget his battle experiences. He can’t move on when his sacrifice is not acknowledged in a nation still shamed by defeat.

When Jimmy hears Trump’s call to ‘Make America Great Again’, it speaks to his anger and resentment—and he is hooked.

His new-found politics drives a wedge between him and his wife, but a chance visit by the son of a fallen comrade makes him doubt his convictions and leads to a moment of understanding and redemption.
