A Walk in the Woods

By Lee Blessing
Directed by Kirk Jackson
Starring Robert Zukerman & David Snider
Two men, one American and one Soviet, take walks in the woods over the course of a year and struggle to save the world from certain annihilation.  Based on a real incident, this compelling and topical play resonates in fresh ways today, as we watch two intelligent and caring politicians lean into the careful craft of true diplomacy and try to save the world.
