"I became what I am today at the age of twelve. I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a mud wall on a frigid winter day in 1975 . . . looking into a deserted alley. It's wrong what they say about the past, about how you can bury it, because the past claws its way out. I realize I've been looking into that alley for the last 26 years"

Khaled Hosseini's acclaimed best-selling novel has been adapted into a stunning stage adaptation ...

Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart

It's a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament

But neither Hassan or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever

A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, The Kite Runner follows one man's journey to confront his past and find redemption
