The Success of The Kite Runner
The Kite Runner is Hosseini’s debut novel, first published in 2003. The Afghan-American author’s book tells the story of a young boy and his childhood friendship intricately woven around a terrified and torn nation. The storyline is profoundly compelling and explores different worlds and themes – father-son relationship, friendship, childhood, monarchy, refugee life and a terror-ridden country at war.
The book was in the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years, selling over 7M copies in the US alone. The story received high acclaims as a novel, and so did its theatrical adaptation. Later, in 2014, the Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company’s production of the story, directed by Giles Croft, was shortlisted for the WhatsOnStage Awards’ 2014 Best Regional Production. Following its success, the production transferred to the West End in December 2016, playing a limited run at the Wyndham’s Theatre until March 2017, and another at the Playhouse Theatre from June till August. Finally, it returns for the audiences of Salford to take you on a journey you will always remember. So why wait?
