The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner Theatre breaks

About the show

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.
