THE STORY: "My God, Russian soldiers being shot by Chinese bullets. Sometimes the world is so beautiful." It's 1981. As the Soviet army burns its way through Afghanistan, CIA operative Jim Warnock is sent to try and halt its bloody progress, beginning a secret spy war behind the official hostilities. Jim and his counterparts in the KGB and the British and Pakistani secret services wrestle with ever-shifting personal and political loyalties. With the outcome of the entire Cold War comes into play, Jim and a larger-than-life Afghan warlord find the only person they can trust is each other. Spanning a decade and playing out in Washington D.C., Pakistan, and Afghanistan, BLOOD AND GIFTS is a sweeping, often shockingly funny epic set against one of the greatest historical events of recent history, the repercussions of which continue to shape our world.

"Rogers' historical synthesis is exciting, admirable, and alive." - The New Yorker. "It thrills as a hard-hitting, high-tension story of power, loyalty and the moral cost of geopolitical gamesmanshipåÉA gripping, sensational spy tale." - Time Out NY. "It grips entirelyåÉImagine that John le Carr collaborated withåÉa disaffected renegade from the West Wing." - The Times (London). åÒSly, funny, informative, and heartbreakingåÉthis is, in every sense, a great play." - Time Out London.
