The Chinese Question: The Tacoma Method
The Chinese Question: The Tacoma Method

empathos company launches into local history with The Chinese Question: The Tacoma Method. This is a staged reading with music and live produced sound effects set inside of a courtroom in Court House Square in downtown Tacoma on November 3 and 4 at 1102 A St., Tacoma, WA.

From a Buffalo soldier to a Chinese merchant to a sheriff's widow to a city mayor, The Chinese Question explores the actions and events that led into the 1885 Chinese expulsion in Tacoma.

The Chinese Question: The Tacoma Method is a new play written by Alana Fineman, John Levi III, and Samantha Chung.  Traditional Chinese erhu music will be played by Yiying Zhou from the Chinese Arts and Music Association and Seattle Chinese Orchestra.

"When I was a little girl, I remember asking, 'Where is Chinatown in Tacoma? Where is it? Why do we have to drive to Seattle, Vancouver B.C., and Portland to find Chinatown?'" says Samantha Chung, executive director of empathos company.
