Adapted by Matthew Spangler. Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini. Directed by Giles Croft.

Direct from London’s West End, the Grand Opera House, in association with The Belfast Book Festival welcomes the critically acclaimed stage adaptation of the best-selling novel by Khaled Hosseini.

The Kite Runner is a haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, following 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 nor Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.
