2019 Summer Season

 
“…a brilliantly original work of art – an excoriating theatrical experience,
surging with shocks of recognition and dramatic fire.”
- Newsweek

 

Love hurts. In the wee hours on the campus of a small American college, a long-suffering couple, George and Martha, stagger home after a faculty party. Refusing to call it a night, Martha announces that she’s invited a new young professor and his wife for a nightcap. As the impromptu after-party rolls on towards dawn their fun and games escalate into a lacerating bout of words and wits. The gloves come off and George and Martha have at each other, at the expense of their guests, landing blow after blow. As dawn approaches and the alcohol continues to flow, a devastating revelation comes to light that changes all four lives forever. Winner of five Tony Awards, this masterpiece of American drama is a brilliant and poetic exposé about our shared human condition.

"A work of passion and power with the ring of political truth."—Time Magazine

 

 “A WALK IN THE WOODS…is absolutely splendid.” – New York Theatre Guide

 

Set in the early 80’s towards the end of the Cold War, a newly assigned American diplomat tries desperately to negotiate a lasting nuclear arms treaty with her more experienced Soviet counterpart. As the talks stall and tensions mount the two decide to take a stroll in a mountain glen in Switzerland away from the negotiating table and the prying eyes of the press. Their private conversations seek to break the stalemate between the super powers and find desirable yet elusive common ground. The stakes couldn’t be higher, the future of the entire human race. Lee Blessing’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony-Award-nominated work still resonates over thirty years later. He has written a magnificent meditation on how conversation has the power to change minds despite our political and ideological differences.
