The professional theatre company, Literature to Life, brings the New York Times bestseller and an international classic, THE KITE RUNNER, to life in a stunning solo performance that audiences will be discussing for days. From the first novel about contemporary Afghanistan to be written in English, this performance dramatically portrays the relationship of two boys – Amir, a privileged Pashtun and Hassan, a Hazara servant. Through the eyes of the young hero, Amir, the actor takes us on a heartbreaking journey of friendship and betrayal in a society of severe class division.

During the show, which utilizes original Afghani music as a backdrop, we meet upwards of eight characters, each fully realized by this virtuosic performer. Attendees are invited to stay for the post show interactive discussion where the audience will explore themes including redemption and class systems.

Join in the pre-show book read and post-show book discussion facilitated by the MARION PUBLIC LIBRARY staff.
