A WALK IN THE WOODS|
A Walk in the Woods, Lee Blessing’s insightful two-character play set during the end of the Cold War, tells the tale of a series of meetings between two diplomats, American and Russian. The play raises deep questions, “What can we do to heal the world?” “What is the value of human connection?” “How can we best bridge fundamental differences?” Blessing’s story has chilling resonance in today’s political climate. The cast features K. Lorrell Manning as John Honeyman, an American negotiator and Martin Van Treuren as Andrey Botvinnik, a career Russian diplomat.
“A Walk in the Woods is as relevant as ever,” says Co-Artistic Director Lee Brock.
