Description

A World Premiere Comedy by Lee Blessing. This sequel to Blessing's well-known 1988, Cold War play, A Walk in the Woods (nominated for both a Tony and a Pulitzer), explores how the current extreme political polarization in our society has come home to roost. We meet John Honeyman, the superpower arms negotiator, twenty years after his historic secret meetings with his Soviet counterpart. John is now retired, remarried and living an idyllic life in his country home along the Hudson, and is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his estranged son, the junior Senator from Tennessee. However, this coerced meeting is not a joyful reunion, but rather one filled with animosity, threats, ultimatums, and long-buried family secrets.
