Based on the true events surrounding the groundbreaking table tennis tournament that marked a decisive new chapter in US-China relations, PING PONG is the story of the extraordinary young man who played the game that changed the world and the political actors who were playing him.  With Nixon and Mao on either side of the court, free spirited hippie Glenn Cowan reaches across the net to usher in a fragile new friendship between two great countries in this funny, incisive and wildly imaginative new play about the little moments of history that set up the big ones.
