The Great Leap tells the story of Manford Lum, a local star of the sidewalk basketball courts of San Francisco’s Chinatown who strongarms his way onto an American college team traveling to Beijing for a “friendship” game. Set amidst the friction of post cultural revolution China, this play explores the cultural collide of identity and politics through the game of basketball, and keeps tensions high right up to the final buzzer.
