Spartan Theatre Company presents Lee Blessing's A Walk in the Woods. This Tony-nominated play follows one year of tumultuous arms negotiations between a young, hopeful American diplomat and a worldly Russian official who's seen it all before. Directed by Artistic Director Patrick Belics (Spartan productions of The Pillowman and Closer,) this show makes use of an unorthodox narrative structure to simultaneously illustrate the cold and impersonal nature of modern politics while putting a deeply human face on those who spend countless hours at the negotiation table.
Ticket prices are $25. Discounts include $10 for industry and students (with I.D.).
Performing at the Den Theatre (1333 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622).
Tickets may be purchased online by visiting spartantheatre.org.
