The Great Leap
When an American college basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama on the court goes deeper than the strain between their countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, it’s a chance to stake their moment in history and claim personal victories off the scoreboard. American coach Saul grapples with his relevance to the sport, Chinese coach Wen Chang must decide his role in his rapidly-changing country and Chinese American player Manford seeks a lost connection. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as history collides with the action in the stadium. Yee’s unexpected and touching story is inspired by events in her own father’s life.
Show dates: Feb 2 - March 11

Dealing with neighbors can be thorny, especially for Pablo and Tania, a young Latino couple who have just moved into a well-established DC neighborhood. Though Frank and Virginia have the best intentions for making the new couple feel welcome next door, their newly budding friendship is tested when they realize their shared property line isn’t where it’s supposed to be. Frank is afraid of losing his prized garden, Pablo wants what is legally his, Tania has a pregnancy and a thesis she’d rather be worrying about, and Virginia just wants some peace. But until they address the real roots of their problems, it’s all-out war in this hilarious and heartfelt play about the lines that divide us and those that connect us.
Show dates: April 6 - May 6

But when he discovers a newfound talent for pinball, he’s swept up in the fame and fortune of his success. Tommy and his family give new voice to The Who’s classic stadium rock as they navigate the troubles and joys of being alive.

Madelyn and Keenan are NPR-listening, latte-sipping, blue-state liberals, while Heather and Jim are NRA-cardholding, truck-driving, red-state conservatives. After an unfortunate mix-up by their blundering fertility doctor, Heather becomes pregnant with the wrong family’s embryo. Now the two couples face sharing an uproarious nine-month odyssey of culture shock, clashing values, changing attitudes and unlikely – but heartfelt – friendships.
Show dates: May 18 - June 24
This is amazing!! Thank you very much for this partnership with DPCA. Is there a way to get an email notification when the voucher release date opens for the next shows?
How is it possible to place a Hold if HOLDS LIMIT FULL?
Hi John. It looks like DCPA gave the library a limited number of tickets: "Holds will be filled while supplies last." My guess is, once all the tickets are spoken for via the holds process, we can't place any more holds.
Does anyone at the library know how people might find out when tickets for the next set of shows will become available? I'm happy to bookmark this page, but I don't think that's the most efficient method.
That's correct, we had a limited number of vouchers from the DCPA, and stopped taking holds once our supply ran out.
We are still working on a set schedule for when the vouchers will be released based on how quickly these vouchers went. This post will be updated as soon as we know!
Wow! What a cool benefit!
This is great! Thanks!
Hi. I’ve been watching this blog for over a month. Nothing has been announced. Now it’s past the start date of some of the shows, and you have nothing. What’s up with that?
Are you going to give away vouchers for The Great Leap? Play is already showing up and I really want to see it. Let us know if you are keeping this program, thank you.
