Friday, Sept 25th: Reading of Blood and Gifts

We hope you can attend a reading of BLOOD AND GIFTS, the new play be J.T. Rogers (MADAGASCAR, THE OVERWHELMING, WHITE PEOPLE.)

“Blood and Gifts” is a political thriller set against the backdrop of the largely unknown secret struggle between the CIA, KGB, and British and Pakistani secret services to control the war in neighboring Afghanistan after the Soviets invaded on Christmas night 1979. Spanning the entire 1980s, the play follows the lives of those on all sides of this covert war as they grapple with whom they can trust, and struggle to hold onto what they are fighting for, as events spiral out of control.

The reading will be directed by Lucie Tiberghien (“Geometry of Fire” and “The Pavilion” at Rattlestick) and feature a crackerjack group of actors. The cast includes Jefferson Mays (“I Am My Own Wife” on Broadway); David Wilson Barnes (“Becky Shaw” at Second Stage); Peter Bradbury (“The Overwhelming” at the Roundabout); Daoud Heidami (“Masked” Off Broadway); and a half dozen equally splendid, seasoned talents.
