March 25, 2024 San Francisco: San Francisco International Arts Festival (SFIAF) is proud to present the San Francisco based ensemble, Eth-Noh-Tec with the World Premiere of Shadows & Secrets.

The year is 1929. It is a stormy night in Chicago's Chinatown. Chin Han Foin, a prominent Chinese immigrant, restaurateur and businessman (dubbed the Prince of Merchantdom) leaned into the elevator shaft of the dumb waiter at his acclaimed Mandarin Inn restaurant to troubleshoot a mechanical flaw... Suddenly he plummeted to his death. Was it just bad luck? Or was he murdered?

The death was recorded as an accident but there has been much suspicion surrounding it ever since, with no one knowing the truth. But one individual is dedicated to finding out what happened to Foin, and that is his grand daughter, Nancy Wang co-director of Eth-Noh-Tec.

This staged, multi-media 'who-dunnit' is presented as a live radio play as Nancy searches for answers! Join Eth-Noh-Tec's Mystery Radio Playhouse help Nancy to solve the cold case of Mr. Chin Foin.
