An idealistic American diplomat locks horns with a mercurial Soviet negotiator during a series of conversations in the woods outside Geneva. As their mutual friendship and understanding deepens, an awareness that their work may ultimately be pointless casts a shadow over their hopes to achieve a lasting peace.
Includes a post-play discussion with playwright Lee Blessing and UCLA Political Science professor Richard Anderson.
