The Kite Runner at the Playhouse Theatre

Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5DE

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 8 June 2017 until 29 July 2017 at the Playhouse 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.


To be announced.


Adaptation by Matthew Spangler and Directed by Giles Croft.
