The Kite Runner

Hayes Theatre
240 West 44th Street New York

The Kite Runner play, like the novel, centers on a man named Amir, who grew up in Afghanistan. He and a boy named Hassan were childhood friends, finding fun and solace in each other and their shared love of kite-flying while Afghanistan is on the brink of war. On the otherwise joyful day of a kite-flying tournament, another boy attacks Hassan, believing Hassan's Hazara Afghan race is inferior to the Pashtun race he and Amir share. Amir witnesses the act, but is afraid to intervene, and their friendship breaks down.
