The Vietnamization of New Jersey (An American Tragedy) starts off with a New Jersey family who await their son’s return from Vietnam. Upon his return they discover he is blind and now has a Vietnamese wife. Allow bedlam to ensue. The play begins in a modest, mild-mannered New Jersey kitchen and spirals out of control from there. The play's entertaining characters deliver a fast-paced gut-punch of a performance that is both humorous and tragic.
Instead of performing the annual studio one-act plays, senior theater majors elected to mount a full-scale production. Students were responsible for casting, directing, designing, costuming, and acting in the play. The play was a triumph for Farr, Claxon, and the entire cast and production crew.
