Synopsis: Lee Blessing’s brilliant and surprisingly humorous play of ideas, based on a true event, seems more timely than ever. Nearing the end of the Cold War, a pair of arms negotiators — a clever, cynical Russian and an idealistic young American — step away from the bargaining table to meet in the woods outside Geneva for a series of talks to explore the obstacles their countries face on the path to peace. There, they debate politics, the future of the free world, the nature of mankind, and the very survival of humanity. Can they find a common place between the politics that divide us and the humanity that unites us? Taken from the website
