A Walk in the Woods

Lee Blessing
 

Set in the midst of the Cold War, Lee Blessing’s powerful and startling play dramatises a stand-off between U.S. and Soviet arms negotiators as they battle for supremacy. Full of tension and humour  A Walk in the Woods shows how the relationship between the two experts evolves as they stroll in the woods above Geneva, away from the glare of the negotiating table. But will this escape lead to a true breakthrough or just more posturing?

In this revised version of the play a woman plays the role of the U.S. negotiator.

Review
A riveting study in the way two opposed people try (or not) to clamber out of ideological stalemate... Blessing cleverly keeps us guessing with a taut script. -  Metro
