The Kite Runner, adapted by Matthew Spangler, directed by Giles Croft, will open in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre from 2 – 6 April 2024.

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. 

One Broadway season and two West End seasons have garnered international acclaim for this incredibly powerful story. 

The 2024 UK tour will open at the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury 7 – 9 March, then tours to Richmond Theatre, London, 12-16 March. The other dates are: 18-23 March Bath Theatre Royal; 26-30 March Chester Storyhouse; 2-6-April Dublin Gaiety, 9-13 April Glasgow Theatre Royal; 16-20 April Nottingham Playhouse; 23-27 April Liverpool Playhouse; 30 April – 4 May Oxford Playhouse; 7-11 May Salford The Lowry; 14-18 May; Guildford Yvonne Arnaud; 28 May – 1-June Malvern Festival Theatre; 4-8 June Sheffield Lyceum; 11-15 June Brighton Theatre Royal; 25-29 June Newcastle Theatre Royal; 2-6 July, Cheltenham Everyman. Cast and full creative team to be announced.
