David Kleinberg returns to Vietnam for the first time in 50 years to revisit the base camp where his buddies died and to perform his acclaimed solo theater work on the Vietnam war, “Hey, Hey, LBJ!” But David’s wife, daughter and his ex-Vietnam buddies all tell him he’s going to get arrested for trying to stage the work without the government’s permission. David is up every night at 3 looking for the first flight home.
