This Week: DIJO Productions "A Walk in the Woods"
DIJO Productions present A Walk in the Woods, the story of two diplomats, one an experienced Russian arms treaty negotiator (Ed Giron), the other an idealistic American (Bill Waxman). Based on a real incident that took place in the woods outside of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1982, it portrays how these two men exited the formal proceedings of a nuclear arms nonproliferation meeting between the superpowers to take the title’s “walk in the woods," getting to know each other as people. In the process, they develop a new strategy for de-escalating the mutual buildup of weapons of mass destruction.
The Pulitzer Prize nominated play by Lee Blessing stars Ed Giron and Bill Waxman in a timely, emotionally charged, and humorous play about two nuclear arms negotiators during the Cold War. This story of two diplomats, one an experienced Russian arms treaty negotiator (Ed Giron), the other an idealistic American (Bill Waxman). Based on a real incident, it portrays how these two men rediscover their humanity in an irrational world.
Generously sponsored by Dr. Loretta Redd and by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, which will offer post show talks on August 18 and 26.
