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. Amir takes us on a heartbreaking journey of friendship and betrayal in a society of severe class division. This Literature to Life award-winning adaptation mirrors the original short story written by the author. Using Afghani music as a backdrop, the performance features pre-show discussion, 50 minutes of verbatim performance from the first half of this best-selling contemporary novel, and 30 minutes postshow audience dialogue. 

Large school groups receive priority seating. General public seating is on a first-come/first-seated basis in sections to be determined. An usher will escort you to your seating area.

Regardless of age, each person attending the performance must have a ticket; "lap tickets" for infants may be purchased at the box office, 913-469-4445.
