Named Best of The Kelowna Fringe Festival 2022

Sadec 1965: A Love Story, an award-winning solo show written and performed by DC-based storyteller Flora Le, is part of the 2024 Kelowna Fringe Festival. This powerful storytelling piece is best described as Cheryl Strayed’s ‘Wild’ but on a motorcycle on the Ho Chi Minh trail. It was awarded “Best Production Overall” and “Best Solo Performance” at the 2022 Kelowna Fringe Festival.

In 2013, Flora rode a motorcycle across Vietnam for six weeks, solo, in an attempt to make sense of her difficult relationship with her estranged Vietnamese father. Flora was on a quest to understand why her father, who left Vietnam with a scholarship to study in Canada in the mid-1960s, never spoke about Vietnam. Since the answers she was looking for would never come from him, Flora decided to go on a road trip across the country, riding a total of 2100 miles in six weeks, from the Chinese border in the North to the village of Sadec, her father’s hometown in the Mekong Delta, to reclaim the story of her origins and make sense of the difficult man that her father was.
