About this show

A Thousand Splendid Suns — the stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini's international best-selling novel of the same name — returns to the Geary Theater. Set amid the war-torn streets of modern-day Kabul, A Thousand Splendid Suns is the epic story of three generations of Afghan women bound together by marriage, family, and a secret past. Strong-willed Laila, unmarried and pregnant, is forced to marry her older neighbor when her family and home are torn apart. In her new home, she forges an extraordinary and unlikely friendship with Mariam, her husband's first wife, and together the two women find the hope and strength to raise a new generation. Adapted for the theater by acclaimed Irish-Indian playwright Ursula Rani Sarma, this stunning production reunites many of the original cast members and, once again, features live music from renowned composer and saw player David Coulter.
