Lee Blessing's Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama, filled with unexpected humor and extraordinary humanity, is an absorbing, revealing, and brilliant debate on the eternal hope and relentless futility of high-stakes politics.
Two superpower arms negotiators — one a cynical Russian veteran and the other an idealistic American newcomer — meet informally in the woods after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. Mr. Blessing's play is a fictionalized account of the meeting between Paul Nitze and Yuli Kvitsinsky, who took a ''walk in the woods'' during the 1982 Geneva peace talks and came up with their own deal, which was later turned down by the United States and the Soviet Union. With Kathleen Chalfant and Paul Niebanck
