Like the chalk line down the middle of feuding siblings’ bedroom floors, the line between comedy and tragedy is thin and can lead to melodramatic outbursts if crossed by mistake.

Hailed by Chicago magazine as the city’s best theater company in 2011, TimeLine looks to build on its already formidable reputation by kicking off its 15th season with a Pulitzer Prize–nominated drama that seamlessly blends humor and humanity. Lee Blessing’s A Walk in the Woods tells the story of two arms negotiators—idealist American John Honeyman and his cynical Russian counterpart Anya Botvinnik—who meet informally in a forest after a nuclear-sized fallout at the mediations table. Hearts frozen by the Cold War begin to thaw as the two hash out their misunderstandings under the thick cover of trees, which blocks out the white noise of news media and the panting engines of racing spaceships. TimeLine’s production underscores the tension between the leads by casting company veteran Janet Ulrich Brooks opposite David Parkes in a traditionally male role.

In confronting issues that still cast a shadow over international relations, A Walk in the Woods fits snugly into TimeLine’s mission to connect audiences with topics of socio-political importance. The two-hour play takes the stage at the newly renovated Theater Wit, which hosts three elegant black-box theaters with a capacity of 98 patrons each. During intermission, theatergoers can defog their monocles and enjoy libations from the wine and coffee bar (refreshments not included in this Groupon).
