The Kite Runner

"There is a way to be good again"

Based on Khaled Hosseini's international best-selling novel, this powerful story has now been adapted into a stunning new 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.

Having mesmerized audiences across the country, this unforgettable production will be flying high at Wyndham's Theatre for a strictly limited season until 11th March 2017.

Latest Critics Reviews

Mon, 6th February 2017

"Giles Croft’s beautifully measured production does full justice to the play’s many moods, creating particularly lyrical images of the kites"


Mon, 6th February 2017

"The Kite Runner offers a tantalising glimpse into a country of extremes and confusing beauty. Ben Turner’s central performance is solid and touching, and Nicholas Karimi’s disturbing portral of Assef is remarkable."
