The Great Leap
About The Great Leap
When an American basketball team travels to Beijing amidst the friction of post cultural revolution China, past relationships collide with present day revelations. The Great Leap tells the story of Manford Lum, a local basketball star in San Francisco’s Chinatown who strongarms his way onto that team, and learns far more than he bargained for. Witty and weighty, this Chicago premiere keeps tensions high right up to the final buzzer.
