The West End adaption of bestselling novel, The Kite Runner, will make its Middle East debut in Dubai next year. From Thursday February 27 to Saturday February 29, 2020, Broadway Productions will be showcasing the award-winning show at Dubai Opera.

Based on the story by Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner is set in Afghanistan and follows the story of two friends throughout their lives. Set in Kabul, we see the contrast between a cheerful town in the midst of a kite flying tournament, before a terrible incident plunges them into a war zone.

The plot explores a variety of cultures and continents, following one man on his journey to confront his past as he seeks redemption. The play has been showcased in London’s West End at Wyndham’s Theatre and at the Playhouse Theatre, and is directed by Giles Croft.
