“In this play, we contain secret selves and animals inside us.
In an instant, 20 years can pass. We travel the world while
standing perfectly still.”  

What happens when Margie (raised to be a good girl; wants to be a lion) leaves home: twenty years whiz by like a moving train, logic and time escape their usual confines, steaks are eaten, tuxes are worn, the world expands, people transform, there is a rule that is breaking.  In a world that is close to ours but is not ours, lions run with limitless grace, we all eat cake, have some champagne.

“Perfect summer programming: zany, sweet, beautifully performed, and extremely well air conditioned.” — Helen Shaw

Polly Lee is “a spiky and big-eyed delight!  Uses incongruity and exaggeration to suggest some midnight-dark truths about human life and endeavor.” — The New York Times

“A rapturous language-fest of a play, directed with a magician’s touch… In this vibrant production of Leap, language makes reality manifest.” — CultureBot 

“Deliciously strange” — Exeunt
