The Kite Runner receives its West End premiere at the Wyndham’s Theatre.

Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, this powerful story has now been adapted into a stunning new stage production.

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

The Kite Runner plays a strictly limited season from 21 December 2016 until 11 March 2017 at the Wyndham’s Theatre.


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 or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.


Ben Turner leads the cast as Amir, alongside Emilio Doorgasingh (as Baba), Nicholas Khan (Rahim Khan), Lisa Zahra (Soraya), David Ahmad (Kamal), Ezra Khan (Ali), Nicholas Karimi (Assef), Antony Bunsee (General Taheri), Hanif Khan (Tabla Player), Bhavin Bhatt (Wali / Doctor), Andrei Costin (Hassan / Sohrab) and ensemble members Johndeep More and Natasha Karp.


Adaptation by Matthew Spangler and Directed by Giles Croft.
