“A work of passion and power with the ring of political truth. It is not only the best of the few dramas to reach Broadway this season, it is also the funniest comedy.” – Time Magazine
“...man has the potential to become a whole new animal. One that trusts instead of fears. One that agrees when it makes sense to agree. That finds the way to live, because life has become for him - has finally become - a sacred thing.”
Nearing the end of the Cold War, two men – a clever, yet cynical Russian and an idealistic young American – discuss and debate politics, life, and the future of the free world on the outskirts of Geneva. As arms negotiators, they explore the obstacles their countries face on the path toward peace. Can personal bonds bridge political chasms?
Starring Michael Stuart (August: Osage County, Dead Presidents Club) & Benjamin Summers (Importance of Being Earnest, 39 Steps)
Directed by A. Skola Summers (Gruesome Playground Injuries, Men of Tortuga)
