Charles Francis Chan Jr.'s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery
Paula Vogel's Bard at the Gate - McCarter Theatre Center - Princeton, New Jersey
In 1967, Berkeley grad student Frank Chan and his artist-activist girlfriend Kathy Ching are staging a revolution. Amid the backdrop of ongoing war in Vietnam and a peak in the civil rights movement, they devise a wild, impulsive theatrical trip through the history of Asians in America, from the ancestral railways of their forebears to the shameful legacy of Charlie Chan stereotypes, all in pursuit of establishing a brand-new political identity they've decided to call "Asian America." Charles Francis Chan Jr.'s Exotic Oriental Murder Mystery is a harmless sing-song orientalist minstrel show that ends in a grotesque carnival of murder! Available beginning January 26.
