A Walk in the Woods September 30 - October 23, 2016

“...well-paced, finely acted, utterly fascinating...” —Chicago Reader “...in keeping with Spartan's philosophy…perfect. ” —Our Urban Times “This Tony-nominated play is in good hands with The Spartan Theatre Company.” —PlaylistHQ

This Tony-nominated play by award winning playwright Lee Blessing follows one year of tumultuous arms negotiations between a young, hopeful American diplomat and a worldly Russian official who's seen it all before. Directed by Artistic Director Patrick Belics (Spartan productions of The Pillowman and Closer,) A Walk In The Woods makes use of an unorthodox narrative structure to simultaneously illustrate the cold and impersonal nature of modern politics while putting a deeply human face on those who spend countless hours at the negotiation table.
