The Kite Runner
Thursday, October 12 @ 7:30 pm
A Literature to Life® Stage Presentation of
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
A Program of Young Audiences New York
The professional theatre company, Literature to Life®, brings the New York Times bestseller and an international classic, THE KITE RUNNER, to life in a stunning solo performance by Sorab Wadia. 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. Through the eyes of the young hero, Amir, the actor takes us on a heartbreaking journey of friendship and betrayal in a society of severe class division.
During the show, which utilizes original Afghani music as a backdrop, we meet upwards of eight characters, each fully realized by this virtuoso performer. Attendees are invited to stay for the post show interactive discussion where the audience will explore themes including redemption and class systems.
Reserved Seating $16 adult, $10 student. Recommended age 14+
Marion Cultural Collaboration: Attendees are invited to attend an interactive discussion at the Marion Public Library a week later where we will explore themes including redemption and class systems. Visit the Marion Public Library to pick up a copy of the book before the stage show at the Palace October 12, then join the book discussion October 19 at the Library. MarionLibrary.org.
