The Kite Runner
Based on Khaled Hosseini’s beloved, international best-selling novel, THE KITE RUNNER is a powerful new play adapted by Matthew Spangler that follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Afghanistan is a divided country, 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 of the boys can foresee the incident which will change their lives forever. Told across two decades and two continents, THE KITE RUNNER is an unforgettable journey of forgiveness, and shows us all that we can be good again.
The Human Race Theatre Company and Dayton Live are proud to bring this national tour to Dayton.

KITES OF KINDNESS
There is power in kindness. Kites Of Kindness is a community engagement project that invites people in the Dayton region and beyond to create messages of hope and support for people suffering all over the world onto paper kite templates. The goal is to collect 10,000 kites from the community and have them on display in the Victoria Theatre lobby during the run of THE KITE RUNNER and other locations in the Dayton region.
