Two different stories tied together by one commonality, their Vietnamese mothers. Lòng Mẹ, which translates into Mother’s Soul/Heart/Love takes you on two very personal journeys; a son coming to terms with the lengths his mother takes to provide for him, even if it means a brush with the law, and a daughter seeing her mother in a new light through her own impending motherhood. This is a tender love letter to all mothers whose love, sacrifice, wit, and steel are what makes us who we are, whether we like it or not.Book Now
VanThanh Productions was established by Tuyen Do and Tuyet Huynh in 2018. Their mission is to enable minority groups to tell their own stories. Their first production was the SOLD OUT World Premiere of Summer Rolls by Tuyen Do at Park Theatre in June 2019 with a tour at Bristol Old Vic. This was the first British Vietnamese play to have ever been staged in the UK.Book Now
"Funny, moving and insightful. Original concept that will speak to those who recognise similarities and will inform those who had a difficult upbringing"
"I could feel her mother’s past and her fear and pride for her daughter and I loved the representation of the developing relationship and both as women together"
A Younger Theatre
"This is a sophisticated play, cleverly constructed and skilfully performed"
A Spy in the stalls
"Cleverly constructed, Le knows how to strike the balance between playful and serious and he does so masterfully. The piece is supported by a strong and likeable delivery"
