More Information on The Kite Runner
“There is a way to be good again”
Direct from the West End, this haunting tale of friendship follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Based on the bestselling novel, The Kite Runner begins in Afghanistan, a divided country on the verge of war where 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 boy can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.
