The Great Leap with BD Wong, Arye Gross and Tim Liu

Now appearing on stage in an international drama of cultural identity, global politics and an intergenerational clash of cultures, Tony Award-winning actor BD Wong stars as the coach of a Chinese basketball team facing his former mentor, the coach of an American team. Tim Liu and Arye Gross co-star in this acclaimed play from Bay Area playwright Lauren Yee.

Join us for a lively discussion with Wong, Liu and Gross about their careers, this play, and more. 

Gross, Liu and Wong are appearing in "The Great Leap" at American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) in San Francisco from March 6–31. 

We'll have a free light lunch provided before the program courtesy of Serramonte Ford.
