The Great Leap
May 31 – June 23, 2019
It’s 1989 and Manfred Lum, renowned for his basketball hustle in Chinatown, tries to talk his way on to a college team destined for a “friendship” game in China. Coach Saul blocks him hard, but Manfred rebounds and launches himself on a journey to a homeland he’s never known. Bouncing between Beijing and San Francisco, between 1989 and 1971, this clever and theatrical play looks at America’s arms-length relationship with Communist China and the post-Cultural Revolution through a story about two generations of basketball players. Smart, funny and heart-pumping, Lauren Yee’s THE GREAT LEAP will have you on your feet for the final buzzer.
Richard Chang, Scott Greer, Justin Jain, and Bi Jean Ngo star in this production.
