WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

San Jose Repertory Theatre presents the world premiere of the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's international best-selling novel, The Kite Runner - a haunting story of friendship and redemption in modern Afghanistan. The play is adapted by Bay Area resident Matthew Spangler and directed by David Ira Goldstein. The Kite Runner is a tale told through the lives of two boys growing up in Kabul in the same household, but in two starkly different worlds. Amir is the son of a wealthy yet emotionally distant businessman, while Hassan is the son of Amir's father's servant, a shunned ethnic minority. Despite the disparity in social positions, the two grow up inseparable until Amir and his father flee the country during the Soviet invasion. Years later, Amir returns to Afghanistan to seek out his old friend and atone for his youthful cowardice. But fate, global politics and historical tragedy threaten Amir's ability to make amends for his past.
