Written by: Michael Golamco

Vuthy Vichea is sixteen years old, Cambodian American. He loves hip hop and Dungeons and Dragons. He has thick-ass glasses. He is a weird kid in a place where weirdness can be fatal: Long Beach, California in 2003. And since his best friend moved and his mother died, the only person he can talk to is a human skull he keeps hidden in a cookie jar. Year Zero is a comedic drama about young Cambodian Americansabout reincarnation, reinvention, and ultimately, redemption.
"The costumes by Anthony Tran captured 2003 and the characters very well: Glenn had a more upscale look; Vuthy had the typical D&D style T-shirts; Han was more menacing in gang-ish attire and tattoos; and Ra was a typical college girl." (Daniel Faigin, Observations Along the Road)
" Anthony Tran’s perfectly chosen costumes complete the design package." (Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA)
