The Great Leap

The Great Leap by Lauren Yee

Directed by Jeffrey Lo

June 17 – July 19, 2020
2017 Kesselring Prize Winner
Sacramento Premiere

When an American college basketball team travels to Beijing for a “friendship” game in the post-Cultural Revolution 1980s, both countries try to tease out the politics behind this newly popular sport. Cultures clash as the Chinese coach tries to pick up moves from the Americans and Chinese-American player Manford spies on his opponents. Inspired by events in her own father’s life, Yee “applies a devilishly keen satiric eye to…her generation (and its parents).”

“A beautiful play with vibrant characters and rich history crackling with fresh dialog.” – BROADWAY WORLD

“The Great Leap has got real game!” – BAY AREA NEWS GROUP
