The Kite Runner

Adapted from Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, The Kite Runner is a stunning stage production which tells the story of a friendship spanning cultures and continents and follows the haunting journey of a man in search of redemption.

"There is a way to be good again."

Afghanistan is divided, on the verge of war. It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are decorated with the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament. Childhood friends Hassan and Amir are about to be torn apart, but neither can foresee the terrifying incident which will shatter their lives forever.

Following successful runs across the country, The Kite Runner comes to the Wyndham’s Theatre this December for a strictly limited season.

  • Good and honest story telling

    13 March 2017

    I really enjoyed the production. It stayed honest and true to the story and defenitly served it justice. However, I feel that at times I was just being read the story or watching the film. Perhaps there could have been some more abstract concepts and more imaginative ways of telling the story. Having said that, the simplicity was also deeply moving and Ben Turner defenitly took us on the journey of Amir.

    13 March 2017

    Having read the book I was interested to see whether the play was as good. I wasn't disappointed. The cast were a fine bunch of actors and did a tear jerking job. It was authentic and held the audience who gave them a standing ovation. A superb afternoon's entertainment.

  • "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."

    From The Box Office Blog
