The great leap
WRITTEN BY Lauren Yee
DIRECTED BY Michael Hisamoto
He went to China for basketball but quickly finds himself playing a very different game. It’s 1989 San Francisco and Manford Lum, a gifted, fast-talking teenager, dominates the high school basketball courts. Facing an uncertain future, he convinces Saul, a cynical and crusty coach, to let him travel to Beijing for a “friendship” game in China. Waiting there is a Chinese national coach with unfinished business, both with Saul and with Manford. On the eve of historic demonstrations, all three men are challenged to define their pasts and their futures.
More information about the production is available here.
