In Lee’s Blessing’s “A Walk in the Woods,” 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, the compelling and topical play resonates in fresh ways today, as audiences watch two intelligent and caring politicians lean into the careful craft of true diplomacy and try to save the world.
“A Walk in the Woods” will be performed at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, New York January 25 through February 3.
Executive & Artistic Director of Hubbard Hall David Snider, Kirk Jackson, and former head of theater for NY State Council on the Arts Robert Zukerman join us now to tell us more. Snider and Zuckerman co-star in “A Walk in the Woods” at Hubbard Hall, and Kirk Jackson, who is a professor of theater at Bennington College, directs.
