BWW Reviews: Group rep Offers a Stimulating WALK IN THE WOODSBWW Reviews: Group rep Offers a Stimulating WALK IN THE WOODS
by Don Grigware - Aug 3, 2010

At first glance, this Walk is a heavily dramatic discussion between a savvy Russian diplomat Andrey (Larry Eisenberg) and a novice, yet sharp American negotiator John (Fox Carney), who meet in Switzerland to develop a treaty for nuclear disarmament. Seemingly heavy drama! However, as the piece progresses, during the course of their walk in the woods - to break the monotony of the indoor table talks - the beauty of the outdoors, the clean air, and the less stressful ambiance lead toward an unexpected alliance between the two men. A sort of friendship develops, as it were, that, as in life, plays out in gamelike fashion with a conflicting mix of ups and downs. No room for boredom here, as a fair amount of levity ensues.
