"There is a way to be good again" The Kite Runner, an outstanding and unforgettable theatrical tour de force comes to Darlington Hippodrome. Based on Khaled Hosseini's international bestselling novel, this haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man's journey to confront his past and find redemption. Afghanistan is a country on the verge of war and best friends are about to be torn apart. It's a beautiful afternoon in Kabul, the skies are full of colour and the streets are full of the excitement of a kite flying tournament, but no one can foresee the terrible incident that will shatter their lives forever. Adapted by Matthew Spangler Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini Directed by Giles Croft Originally produced by Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse The Kite Runner press quotes: ***** "The best page-to-stage show since War Horse..., a spellbinding production" The Stage ***** "The Kite Runner is a truly contemporary cultural phenomenon..." The Sunday Express **** "Just the ticket!" Metro ****"An Afghan epic to remember" Libby Purves "Director Giles Croft delivers a coup....an enthralling tale beautifully told" The Telegraph "The Kite Runner soars...Very moving - you would have to be made of stone not to be deeply affected..." The Independent "An unexpected delight...a charmer as well as heartbreaking" Mark Shenton London Theatre
