About the Show

It's 1989 and Manford Lum, renowned for his basketball hustle in Chinatown, tries to talk his way on to a college team destined for a "friendship" game in China. Coach Saul blocks him hard, but Manford rebounds and launches himself on a journey to a homeland he's never known.  Bouncing between Beijing and San Francisco, between 1989 and 1971, this clever and theatrical play looks at America’s arms-length relationship with Communist China and the post-Cultural Revolution through a story about two generations of basketball players.  Smart, funny and heart-pumping, Lauren Yee's THE GREAT LEAP will have you on your feet for the final buzzer.

Stop by before the 8 p.m. performance of THE GREAT LEAP and grab a drink and a snack in InterAct Theater Company's comfortable lobby, while mingling for a good cause with fellow patrons.
From 7-8 p.m., 50% of all concessions sales will be donated to the Council!
