Synopsis: After last season's critically acclaimed completely sold-out run of Agent G, the Drama Desk and OBIE Award winning Ma-Yi Theater Company has joined forces with your favorite undead wranglers to complete the play that began just months ago. Along with all the ridiculousness that highlighted the original production, The Unrated Version will also feature a revamped script, new fights, and even a brand new song by Qui Nguyen & Shane Rettig. Come out to see the completed vision of The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G and experience the show the way it was intended with even bigger, bolder, and even more cheer-inducing badassness! It's been 10 years since Agent G has last been in Vietnam where his family and friends were all viciously slain. He's now come back looking for answers and a good bit of revenge, however forces are at hand trying to stop him as well as the playwright from finishing this brutal task.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Qui Nguyen’s play “The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G,” an ambitious entertainment about modern identity wrapped inside an exploitation drama about what used to be called the “inscrutable Orient,” suggests we have an answer. “Agent G” gleefully mocks countless movies and features, on video, a soft-core narrator breathing heavily."

TIME OUT NEW YORK REVIEW:

"It has been five years since Qui Nguyen’s wrenching boat-people drama Trial by Water, and during that time the young playwright’s reputation has mainly depended on ironic chop-socky mayhem. He and his Vampire Cowboys Theatre Company make badass action-theater mash-ups (e.g. Soul Samurai), an aesthetic system only occasionally visited by a long-orbit comet of sincerity. In the schizophrenic, wonderful The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G, the comet at long last returns, drawing Nguyen into profound metatheatrical self-examination. He can’t stay serious for long—insights alternate with dance battles and the Vampire Cowboys’ usual barrage of inside jokes. This confusion of gravities keeps the play fascinatingly off-balance: In its very wonkiness, we feel a playwright tearing himself apart to find his own first principles."

SHOW BUSINESS WEEKLY REVIEW:

"From its pre-show notice to turn off all cell phones (designed as a trailer for a vengeance thriller), The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G explodes with finely tuned action and humor. The latest offering from the Vampire Cowboys, a downtown theater company with a commitment to producing “the most badass and cutting-edge geek entertainment possible,” Agent G combines the Cowboys’ signature spontaneous genre-shifting and fight-filled style with the more mundane yet poignant struggles of truth that a playwright undergoes during the writing process."

NY THEATRE REVIEW:

"Vampire Cowboys Theatre Company is, by its own description, a “geek theatre company specializing in creating comic book styled theatrical shows that are filled with martial arts, badass ladies, physically weaker male characters who tend to need saving, and sudden and abrupt genre shifts.” Co-artistic director Qui Nguyen’s new play, The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G, part three of his “Gook Story Trilogy,” provides us with all of these things in spades. But the hilarious, sharp, high-octane show, produced in association with Ma-Yi Theater Company at the Beckett Theater on Theater Row, sneakily disguises a lot of heart and some important questions under the witty spectacle about a playwright struggling to write a very personal family chronicle the “right way.”"

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"In The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G, which comes to the Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row after a run downtown last spring, playwright Qui Nguyen blends the pop culture aesthetic that has been the hallmark of his work with the Vampire Cowboys Theatre Company with metatheatrics and pungent autobiography. It's a little like James Bond and Jackie Chan meet Luigi Pirandello; this uneasy hybrid both provokes thought and incites gales of laughter."
