Written in 1988, the setting is a mountain slope outside of Geneva, Switzerland. Two arms limitation negotiators, John Honeyman, a young American and Andrey Botvinnik, a seasoned Russian diplomat, leave the negotiations table to take a walk in the woods and simply talk. As they return to the woods over the course of a year, an unlikely friendship develops. Powerful performances are given by Zachary Ambrose (Traer) and Zach Kennedy (Cedar Falls). Richard Arp (Clutier) directs.
Performances will be at 7 PM, Friday, September 29 and 2 PM on Saturday and Sunday, September 30 and October 1st at St. Joseph’s Building, 101 Clark Street in Dysart. Tickets are $10 and can be reserved by calling 319-239-8660.
