About this show

The Baryshnikov Dance Foundation in association with Dance Affiliates presents Forbidden Christmas or The Doctor and The Patient, a play by Rezo Gabriadze. Starring Mikhail Baryshnikov, Jon DeVries, Gregory Mitchell, Pilar Witherspoon and Yvonne Woods. The play is set in a Soviet Georgian town during the early fifties, and tells the story of a doctor and a patient (who thinks he is a car), and the emotional journey they undertake one stormy Christmas Eve. With poignancy and humor, the play addresses loss, madness, self-discovery, and love, part absurdist drama, part folktale, Forbidden Christmas is an evocative, whimsical world, creating a magical and surreal tale.
