The Kite Runner’s incredible stage success continues to soar to new heights! Is coming to the Grand Opera House, York on Tuesday 8th – Saturday 12th May
Following two acclaimed West End seasons, when it played to over 100,000 people and received standing ovations at every performance, this unforgettable theatrical tour-de-force will now tour to 16 cities and towns across the UK and Ireland in 2018.
Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, this haunting and powerful story has been adapted into a stunning stage production. A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, it 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 or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever…
