The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner

Giles Croft’s production of Khaled Hosseini’s award-winning novel The Kite Runner returns to London, following an acclaimed run at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Flying into the Playhouse Theatre for a second West End run, the award-winning stage production originally premiered in 2013 at Nottingham Playhouse, before embarking on a successful UK tour.

Adapted for the stage by Matthew Spangler, The Kite Runner is the pertinent tale of childhood friends Hassan and Amir, who are ripped apart as a violent war engulfs Afghanistan.

When the pair attend a kite flying tournament, a horrifying incident shatters their lives forever, bringing in to question their inseparable friendship.

A heart-wrenching, gritty tale that remains startlingly relevant today, The Kite Runner has had international success, becoming an A-Level studied text and selling over 31.5 million texts across the world.

In 2007, the story was adapted into an award-winning film, before later becoming an award-winning play. A powerful story of human emotion, the importance of family and the detrimental effects of war.

The Kite Runner plays a limited season at the Playhouse Theatre from June 8th to July 29th 2017.
