‘The Butcher’s Son’ considers history, myth and memory with passion and humor

“The Butcher’s Son,” which runs through Aug. 18 in the Buffalo Room at the Westport Flea Market, is a dramatic tale, filled with considerable poignancy and humor, and viewers can’t help but be impressed by the courage and tenacity of Vi Tran’s parents as they took their young son and daughter through refugee camps in Southeast Asia before finding a new home in southwestern Kansas.
