A hugely popular Everyman & Playhouse co-production flies home from the West End as the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s international bestseller The Kite Runner (27th February – 3rd March) returns to the Playhouse.

Set in a divided Afghanistan, the story follows Amir and Hassan, two boys who head out to enjoy a kite flying tournament, but neither can foresee the terrible incident that will change their lives forever. Since its first incarnation at the Playhouse in 2014, The Kite Runner has enjoyed two successful and acclaimed West End seasons.
