The Kite Runner, is a story written by Khaled Hosseini first published in 2003. It became a New York Times best seller and was eventually adapted into a movie and a play. The somber story centers around the life of a young, privileged Afghani named Amir.
The New Rep’s production will draw you in. The narrative play opens in Kabul when Amir is a child growing up with his best friend and servant, Hassan. Its a happy story, but by the time the first act closes you’ll have lump in your throat. The second act opens in America but when contacted by a family friend Hassan finds himself returning to Pakistan and Afghanistan where he must face his past, literally.
Performances run Wed thru Sunday until Sept 30th
I loved this story and I think you will too. This is a play that will elicit discussion and make you thankful to have the good fortune to grow up in a developed nation. New Rep Theatre’s performances of The Kite Runner conclude on Sunday, September 30th. Performances run Wednesday thru Sunday each week and tickets may be purchased here.
