The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner

Synopsis

'There is a way to be good again'
 
Back by popular demand after a sell out run, The Kite Runner soars again at the Playhouse Theatre
for a strictly limited season from 8 June.
 
Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, this powerful story has been adapted into a stunning new stage production. A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, it follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
 
Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart. It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament. But neither Hassan or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.
