The play is scheduled to run at the Lyceum Theatre from June 30 to July 4 as part of a nationwide tour. The tour follows two acclaimed West End seasons when it played to more than 100,000 people and received standing ovations at every single performance.

A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, The Kite Runner follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.

Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and 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 Hassan nor Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.

The stage production is based on Khaled Hosseini’s debut best-selling novel.
