THE MISSING WOMAN tells the story of an artist living happily with his wife, a talented traditional musician. One day she disappears. He asked characters in his paintings to help him looking for her. He travels back into the spiritual worlds of well-known female figures in Vietnamese literature and theaters to seek the answer.

This is the first time the Vietnam contemporary theater introducing “The Missing Woman”—a bilingual play performed by leading Vietnamese artists to the public in New York City. This play was chosen to represent Vietnam in the 2003 Asian Pacific Theater Festival in Manila, the Philippines.
