Ahead of the National Tour, Khaled Hosseini’s hugely successful international best-selling novel, The Kite Runner, returns to the Playhouse.
This haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, 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 of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.
Due to the adult themes and occasional use of strong language in The Kite Runner, we have set a guideline age of 14+.
The Khaled Hosseini Foundation is a nonprofit organisation which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.
