The West End adaption of bestselling novel, The Kite Runner, will make its Middle East debut in Dubai this February. From Thursday February 27 to Saturday February 29, 2020, Broadway Productions will be showcasing the award-winning show at Dubai Opera.
Based on the story by Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner is set in Afghanistan and follows the story of two friends throughout their lives.
A tale of friendship that spans cultures and continents, the story follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption. Set during turbulent times beginning when Afghanistan was on the verge of war, the story begins with 12-year-old Amir and his friend Hassan and follows them through to adulthood. Since its publication in 2003, Hosseini’s ‘The Kite Runner’ has sold eight million copies worldwide.
‘The Kite Runner’ is adapted by playwright, director and professor Matthew Spangler. The production has played in London’s West End at Wyndham’s Theatre and at the Playhouse Theatre, before embarking on an international tour. The play is directed by Giles Croft who is also a playwright and his work has been produced widely in the UK and Europe.
There’s five shows to choose from, with a choice of 8pm on Thursday February 27 and 3pm or 8pm on Friday February 28 and Saturday February 29.
