The Niederkorn Indoor Stage

by Lauren Yee

When an American college basketball team travels to Beijing for a “friendship” game in the post-Cultural Revolution 1980s, both countries try to tease out the politics behind the popular sport. This ATHLETIC and QUICK-WITTED TIMELY POLITICAL DRAMA combines the personal with the historical, in a story inspired by the short-lived basketball career of award-winning playwright Lauren Yee’s own father.

(Appropriate for ages 12 and up (adult language).
