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 witty but cynical Russian veteran
and the other an idealistic American
newcomer — meet informally in the
woods after long, frustrating hours at
the bargaining table. TimeLine's production is presented with a twist: The two characters (originally written as two men) are portrayed by TimeLine Company Members Janet Ulrich Brooks and David Parkes.
"A work of passion and power with the ring of political truth." —Time
