The Stage – The Great Leap
September 29, 2021 - October 17, 2021$32 – $38
Basketball, family, and Tiananmen Square intersect in this witty and fast-paced comedic drama.
When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for a “friendship game” in 1989, this comedic drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. Through the game of basketball, laughter ensues as cultures meet head on and tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as a pivotal moment in history collides with the action in the arena. Driven by rapid-fire dialogue, THE GREAT LEAP explores the cultural and political risks of raising your voice and standing your ground.
