.‘The Great Leap’ at San Jose Stage

We’re all acquainted with the magic of sports movies—timeless stories of how conflict and rivalries turn into bonds and community. The cultural footprint of the genre of storytelling is so huge, it’s a wonder we don’t see more groups bringing them to live theater. Enter The Great Leap. Playwright Lauren Yee’s comedic drama stages the geopolitical tension between the US and China circa 1989 on the basketball court in a kinetic story inspired by the pace of an exhibition game. San Jose Stage tips off their 2021-22 season with the exciting play, bringing to life all the satire and three-point attempts that come with it.
