A Walk in the Woods
Stemming from an actual incident in Geneva in 1983 when a Soviet and an American diplomat took "a walk in the woods" together during arms control talks, Blessing's provocative drama is appearing on Broadway and is a strong contender for the Pulitzer Prize.
LEE BLESSING, a multi-award-winning playwright, has been a major force in post 1960s American theatre. Blessing's plays are considered by many critics to be truthful, often controversial explorations in the variance of human relationships. He has been awarded The American Theater Critics Circle Award, The Great American Play Award, and many others. Three of his plays have been cited in Time magazine's list of the year's Ten Best. Blessing heads the graduate playwriting program at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.
