Walk In The Woods 2013
Two diplomats, in the middle of peace talks, take a private walk in the woods to try and achieve a breakthrough in the muddled negotiations between their countries. Will their attempt succeed where official channels have failed? What role do individuals play in the larger game that governments set in motion? What of the longing on both sides of the border to make contact with each other?
Lee Blessing's original play was based on a real-life event, when Paul Nitze of the US and Yuli Kvitsinky of the USSR left their official Geneva sessions to take an unofficial walk in the woods and achieved a breakthrough, which was soon rejected by their governments.
