Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of Andre Bishop, Artistic Director, and Bernard Gersten, Executive Producer) has extended the limited engagement run of its critically acclaimed production of BLOOD AND GIFTS, a new play by J.T. Rogers, directed by Bartlett Sher, for an additional week through Sunday, January 8 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater (150 West 65 Street). 

{module ad_left_body}BLOOD AND GIFTS features Michael Aronov, Jeremy Davidson, Robert Hogan, Jefferson Mays, Andrés Munar, Rudy Mungaray, J Paul Nicholas, Paul Niebanck, John Procaccino, Liv Rooth, Gabriel Ruiz, Pej Vahdat, Andrew Weems and Bernard White and 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.

BLOOD AND GIFTS is performed Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm with matinees Wednesday and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm.  Please note that during Christmas week there will be no performance on Sunday, December 25, a special matinee performance on Friday, December 23 at 2pm and that the Saturday, December 31 New Year’s Eve performance will begin at 7pm.
