“There is a way to be good again”

The Kite Runner, an outstanding and unforgettable theatrical tour de force returns to Salisbury Playhouse direct from London's West End.

Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international bestselling novel, this haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.

Afghanistan is a country on the verge of war and best friends are about to be torn apart. It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul, the skies are full of colour and the streets are full of the excitement of a kite flying tournament, but no one can foresee the terrible incident that will shatter their lives forever.

★★★★★  “The best page-to-stage show since War Horse…. a spellbinding production’’
The Stage

★★★★★ “The Kite Runner is a truly contemporary cultural phenomenon...”
