1967. The auspicious beginnings of a new political identity called Asian American, as a young literary hippie named Frank essays an inscrutable Chinese detective. A harmless sing-song Orientalist minstrel show that ends in a grotesque carnival of murder! Lloyd Suh's CHARLES FRANCIS CHAN, JR.'S EXOTIC ORIENTAL MURDER MYSTERY is NAATCO's first commission. It is an adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the novel that introduced Hercule Poirot.

Bloom. Composer and Musical Director is Alan Schmuckler, Dramaturg is Kimber Lee, Props Supervisor is Samantha Shoffner and Qui Nguyen will serve as Fight Choreographer.
