CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

The Kite Runner

Based on Khaled Hosseini's hugely popular international best-selling novel, The Kite Runner. This haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man's journey to confront his past and find redemption. Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and childhood friends, Amir and Hassan 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 what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.
Author Matthew Spangley (based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini)
