United Arab Emirates, Dubai, 21 November, 2019: Broadway Entertainment Group and Dubai Opera announced today the Middle East debut of the West End production of THE KITE RUNNER, which will be performed at Dubai Opera from 27 – 29 February 2020.


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.
Set during turbulent times beginning when Afghanistan was on the verge of war, when best friends are about to be torn apart, the production follows 12-year-old Amir and his friend Hassan, through to adulthood.

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. Since its publication in 2003, The Kite Runner has sold eight million copies worldwide.

Chief Executive Officer of Broadway Entertainment Group, Liz Koops said: “We are proud to be bringing this stunning production of THE KITE RUNNER to the Middle East for the very first time. For a limited time only, theatre lovers can expect to witness an unforgettable and remarkable performance as they become immersed in this outstanding story based on Khaled Hosseini’s international bestselling novel. Appealing to literary buffs and cultural enthusiasts, this is one not to be missed.”

THE KITE RUNNER is adapted by playwright, director, and professor Matthew Spangler. His critically acclaimed production of THE KITE RUNNER has played in London’s West End at Wyndham’s Theatre and at the Playhouse Theatre, before embarking on an international tour.

The play is directed by Giles Croft who is also a playwright and his work has been produced widely in the UK and Europe.
