“A Walk in the Woods”
Sept. 5-21. Set in the midst of the Cold War, Lee Blessing’s powerful and startling play dramatizes a stand-off between U.S. and Soviet arms negotiators as they battle for supremacy. Full of tension and humor, the play shows how the relationship between the two experts evolves as they stroll in the woods above Geneva, away from the glare of the negotiating table. But will this escape lead to a true breakthrough or just more posturing? The play was nominated for both a Tony award and a Pulitzer Prize. Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets available at www.spokanestageleft.org.
