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.

    The play was equisite in its portrayal of the universality of human emotions .The raw emotion of the character s and the backdrop of the history of afghani diaspora made it a memorable piece

  • Mesmerising production

    10 March 2017

    The play was so well done that we couldn't take our eyes off the stage. I was amazed at how I could get so engrossed into the kite flying competition . It was quite sad and emotional in places but moved along quickly so did nit make the sadness linger. Thankfully a good ending. All thr actors were brilliant especially Amir and Hassan. Definitely recommend it.

  • Amazing performance!

    10 March 2017

    We highly recommend the play to everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the storyline was as close to the book as possible in a play and even though my partner had not read the book and knew nothing about the story, he thought it was coherent, and more importantly gripping and insightful. I changed from laughing out loud to shedding tears, it surely was an emotional experience. This story is for everyone!

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


  • "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."
