The place is a “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” where two arms negotiators, a Russian and an American, meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. The Russian, Botvinnik, 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 younger American counterpart, a newcomer to the arms-control talks, is a bit stuffy and pedantic, but also fervently idealistic about what can — and must — be achieved through perseverance and honest bargaining.
“A Walk in the Woods” is an important, brilliantly executed and strikingly original play which brings deep perception and unexpected humor to its probing examination of the continuing negotiations on nuclear disarmament.
"A Walk in the Woods, a play by Lee Blessing is as timely now as when it was presented on Broadway in 1988. It is directed by Liz Curtis and stars Patrick Joseph Ward and Rick Paulin!
"It is a marvelous piece of theater as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind, and should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature."-- Drama-Logue. "
"...a work of passion and power with the ring of political truth. It is not only the best of the few dramas to reach Broadway this season, it is also the funniest comedy." -- Time Magazine.
