This extraordinarily topical play asks immediate questions on how we create true diplomacy in today’s world. How can we save the world from annihilation through friendship, honesty and trust? And who is truly caring for these issues today?
About the Play
Two men, one American and one Soviet, take a series of walks in the woods over the course of a year and struggle to save the world from certain annihilation. Based on a real incident, this compelling and topical play resonates in fresh ways today, as we watch two intelligent and caring negotiators lean into the careful craft of true diplomacy and try to save the world. A Walk in the Woods played on Broadway in 1988 starring Robert Prosky and Sam Waterson, and since then has been produced across the country and Off-Broadway in recent years. This is the first time Hubbard Hall is featuring this piece and the actor Robert Zukerman, who led the Theater Program of the New York State Council of the Arts for almost three decades.
