A Walk in the Woods

a Pulitzer-finalist drama by Lee Blessing

With world tensions escalating, Lee Blessing’s 1987 Broadway play, A Walk in the Woods, is especially relevant today.

In the midst of the Cold War, two superpower arms negotiators - a Russian and an American - meet informally in the pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland. Over the course of several seasons, their revealing and absorbing conversations, laced with humor, cynicism, and idealism evolve through debate and discord, exploring unexpected and uncharted territory.

For those yearning for a more enlightened world, A Walk in the Woods offers much to think about.
