Set in a wood on the outskirts of Geneva during a nuclear arms conference, the play examines the relationship between the two chief negotiators, a Russian and American as they meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the negotiating table. A humorous, deeply moving study of mankind's quest for War and Peace. In this revised version of the play, originally performed at Northern Stage, Vermont, a woman plays the role of the US negotiator. Nicolas Kent s decision to cast a woman in the role keeps the production topical, reflecting the more recent appointments of women such as Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Rodham Clinton to positions of diplomatic global power.Performers Steven Crossley (Andrey Botvinnik), Myriam Cyr (Joan Honeyman).
