Dysart Reporter

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 7:00 pm, Friday, September 29 and 2:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 30 and October 1 at St Joseph's Building, 101 Clark Street, Dysart, Iowa. Tickets are $10 and can be reserved by calling 319-239-8660.

Lee Blessing, a Minnesota native, studied playwriting at the University of Iowa where he received MFA degrees in English and Speech and Theater. He later returned to teach at the Iowa Playwrights Workshop and the Iowa Writers' Workshop.

Following its premiere in Waterford, Connecticut, A Walk in the Woods was nominated for a Tony award, award for the Play of the Year, a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Though the production did not win the awards, it was reprised in Moscow in 1989 and later adapted for television.
