The Kite Runner to return to the West End

The play will run at the Playhouse Theatre following its run at Wyndham’s

The Kite Runner will return to the West End this summer following a run at Wyndham's Theatre earlier this year.

Based on the 2003 book by Khaled Hosseini, the play is set in Afghanistan and follows Amir at different stages through his life and his friendship with Hassan, the son of his father's servant.

Directed by Giles Croft, the production opened at Nottingham Playhouse in 2013, and starred Casualty actor Ben Turner as Amir.

In her review for WhatsOnStage, Sarah Crompton said adaptor Matthew Spangler has "faithfully replicated [the] virtues" of a book "once read, never forgotten."

Casting for the West End revival is yet to be announced.

The Kite Runner will run at the Playhouse Theatre from 8 June to 29 July.
