When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, the game is a chance to claim personal victories on and off the court. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as a pivotal moment in history collides with the action in the arena. Sharp-witted and weighty, this perceptive new play explores the cultural and political risks of raising your voice and standing your ground.

“An exhilarating, deeply satisfying piece of work.” -New York Magazine

“The play’s relevance could not be more immediate” –Chicago Sun-Times

“Even those who don’t care for basketball or international affairs will care about these characters.” -Pasadena Star-News
