Forging ahead with the theme Season of Change, Serenbe Playhouse’s adaptation of Lee Blessings’ 1988 Cold War drama, “A Walk in the Woods” will hit the stage on June 27 and run through July 14.

Allan Edwards and Robin Bloodworth, local theatre artists from metro Atlanta, will star in the production.

Harrison Long, the director of the play, said this production is significant.

“Lee Blessings is one of the most foremost American playwrights,” he said. “What is special about this particular production is that we have the added advantage of hindsight and knowing what the characters don’t know.”

Long said the audience will know that the Berlin Wall fell and that knowledge adds an additional perspective.

Long also said the themes Blessings touches on are still relevant today.

“World peace has never been more tenuous,” he said. “Violence has emerged in new forms — with sophisticated cyber warriors and home-grown terrorists. The world has never been more volatile.”

Performances will take place Thursday through Sunday at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for students with ID and $25 general admission.

They can be purchased from the Serenbe Playhouse box office, 9110 Selborne Lane in Chattahoochee Hills, or online at

Also upcoming at Serenbe is a Lunch and Learn, sponsored by Many Fold Farm, June 29 at 12:30 p.m.

Farm owner Rebecca Williams said the event was suggested by a Serenbe resident.

“[It] was the idea of Phyllis Blewis, who lives in Serenbe,” she said. “She thought of all the talented and interesting people who live and work in Chattahoochee Hills and invited them to provide a presentation, free of charge, about what they do and why they do it.”

Williams said the main goal is to bring community members together, to start a discourse and to educate residents about local farming.

“I hope to leave folks with a good idea of the importance of local, sustainable agriculture and the vital need for consumer participation in these kinds of food systems as well as practical ways of learning how they can eat more local foods,” she said.

Only 12 participants will be admitted to the event but Williams said there is still room for residents sign up.
