Following an outstanding West End Run, this unforgettable theatrical tour de force comes to venues around the UK. Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international bestselling novel, this haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents 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 nor Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever. Adapted by Matthew Spangler Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini Directed by Giles Croft Originally produced by Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse.
