Blood and Gifts
Commissioned by Lincoln Center Theater, and presented last year at the National Theatre, BLOOD AND GIFTS tells the story of the secret spy war behind the official Soviet-Afghan War of the 1980s. Spanning a decade and playing out in Washington DC, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, the play follows CIA operative Jim Warnock (Jeremy Davidson) as he struggles to stop the Soviet Army's destruction of Afghanistan. The ground constantly shifts for Jim and his counterparts in the KGB (Michael Aronov) and British and Pakistani secret service (Jefferson Mays and Gabriel Ruiz, respectively) as the political and personal alliances between the men keeps changing. And as the outcome of the entire Cold War comes into play, Jim and a larger-than-life Afghan warlord (Bernard White) find the only person they can trust is each other.
