“There is a way to be good again.”

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.

Khaled Hosseini’s beloved international best-selling novel now adapted into a stunning stage play by Matthew Spangler is a sweeping saga of family, love, and friendship. It is an unforgettable and heart-breaking play about the price of betrayal and the possibility of redemption and an exploration of the influence of fathers over sons–their love, their sacrifices, their lies.
