Stage and screen stars Alfred Molina and Steven Weber will star in the L.A. Theatre Works staging of Lee Blessing’s A Walk in the Woods January 25-27 at the UCLA School of Theater's James Bridges Theater. Cameron Watson will direct.

The play, set toward the end of the Cold War, follows a pair of arms negotiators—a clever, cynical Russian (Molina) and an idealistic young American (Weber)—who meet in the woods outside Geneva to explore the obstacles their countries face on the path to peace. Blessing’s dramatic comedy was inspired by conversations between negotiators Paul H. Nitze and Yuli A. Kvitsinsky, who left the official 1982 Geneva sessions for an unofficial “walk in the woods.”

A talkback with playwright Blessing and professor of political science, Richard D. Anderson, Jr., will follow the January 26 matinee performance.

Each of the four performances will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download, and online streaming.

Molina is a three-time Tony nominee for his performances in Art, Fiddler on the Roof, and Red. Weber's Broadway credits include The Philanthropist, The Producers, Loot, Home Front, and The Real Thing.
