A Walk in the Woods


by Lee Blessing

February 24,25 & March 3,4,5   

“Not only one of the best dramas of the few dramas to hit Broadway… It also is the funniest comedy” TIME MAGAZINE

The place is a “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” where two superpower arms negotiators, one Russian, one American. The Russian, Botvinnik, is a seasoned veteran who has mastered the Soviet “hard line”, is urbane and humorous but at the same time profoundly cynical about what the current sessions can accomplish. His American counterpart, Honeyman, a newcomer is a bit stuffy but fervently idealistic about what can and must be done. Through their absorbing and revealing conversations, we become aware both of the deepening understanding between these two wise and decent menand also their mutual profound frustration.
