The Kite Runner goes from Afghanistan to Albany, from Book to Stage, Guilt to Redemption [Berkshire on Stage]

The Kite Runner was first a book, then a film, but it is most powerful on stage where the story of one person's life in Afghanistan comes to life viscerally.

The Kite Runner was first a book, then a film, but it is most powerful on stage where the story of one person's life in Afghanistan comes to life viscerally.

The Kite Runner is a one-person theatrical adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s story of guilt and redemption, brutality and kindness, sin and forgiveness. It portrays the doomed relationship of two boys – a privileged Pashtun and a Hazara servant – one rich, one poor, one flawed, the other pure. This award-winning stage adaptation based on the first half of the best-selling contemporary novel takes audiences on a heartbreaking journey of friendship and betrayal in a society of severe class division against a backdrop of 1970s Afghanistan in turmoil.
