The Great Leap The Great Leap

The Great Leap  | 

November 6 — December 1
When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game, the coaches find themselves in a conflict that runs deeper than the strain between the countries, and a young player’s actions abroad become the accidental focus of attention. Building tension right up to the buzzer, this sharp-witted new drama directed by Tony Award winner B.D. Wong is about much more than making the shot, as two men with a past and one teen with a future struggle to for their own personal victories.

“An exhilarating, deeply satisfying piece of work.”

-New York Magazine

by Lauren Yee

A co-production with East West Players
