With war and international politics tearing the country apart, two boys form a friendship on the verge of being ripped apart in Cold War Afghanistan. Amir and Hassan are brought together by their love of kite flying, but with greater powers at work, Amir must come to terms with friendship and betrayal, fatherhood and guilt. The Kite Runner is a stunning story of redemption set against a beautiful, ancient country sundered by the circumstances of war in the 20th century.
Khalad Hosseini’s best-selling international hit novel is transformed into an unforgettable stage experience, making its way to London’s Wyndham’s Theatre for the first time ever.
A powerful and mesmerising play with themes that transcend culture, class and country. A story of friendship and fatherhood, and the forces that drive us apart. Expect Khalad Hosseini’s novel to be masterfully realised with compelling performances and evocative sets.
