“There is a way to be good again.”
Winter, 1975. 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 nor Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.

Khaled Hosseini's beloved international best-selling novel now adapted into a stunning stage play by Matthew Spangler is a sweeping saga of family, love, and friendship. It is an unforgettable and a heart-breaking play about the price of betrayal and the possibility of redemption and an exploration of the influence of fathers over sons–their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

About Aadyam

We (Aditya Birla Group) have been bringing theatre to people; now we want to bring more people to the theatre. We want people to give theatre a chance, because we know once they're hit with the magic on stage, the magic of theatre, for the first time, they'll find it hard to stay away. With the landmark Season 5 of Aadyam, we aim to initiate the uninitiated to the theatre community. Over the course of the season, we will break down the walls (fourth or otherwise) to allow our audiences a glimpse into ‘everything theatre’. The experience is no longer limited to watching the play. If you’re interested, we’ll be showcasing the elements that are usually invisible behind-the-scenes through our new blog Stage-Write & Aadyam's very own theatre club.
