The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts, celebrating its 50th Anniversary, returns to The Wild Center with “A Walk in the Woods” by award-winning playwright Lee Blessing. Directed by Allison Studdiford, this timely and thought-provoking play will feature two of the North Country’s most accomplished and acclaimed actors, Burdette Parks and Jordan Hornstein.

This important and strikingly original play brings deep perception and unexpected humor to its probing examination of the superpower negotiations on nuclear disarmament. The play was a long-running Broadway success and a nominee for the 2015 Drama Desk Award. The Wild Center’s Flammer Theater will serve as the perfect venue for this play, providing changing seasonal views as the backdrop for the brilliant repartee of Parks and Hornstein.

Two arms negotiators, an older Soviet diplomat and a younger American negotiator, stroll in the woods above Geneva, Switzerland, away from the glare of the negotiating table. The two men eventually develop a relationship, although their personalities differ. The play is suggested by a real-life incident, which occurred in 1982.

The nature of this play may make it difficult for young audience members to follow, and some language may not be appropriate for smaller children.

Ticket price is $15 for Arts Center and Wild Center members, $20 for adult non-members, and $8 for children 12 and under.
