The European stage premiere of Khaled Hosseini’s bestselling novel, The Kite Runner opened here last Friday. Since then we have received enthusiastic reviews from critics, audience members and bloggers alike. Director Giles Croft is delighted with the response, saying: “It has been a privilege to bring such a complex and affecting story to the stage, to such a warm response.”
“The performances in Giles Croft’s fine production are mesmerising, but as the hero and narrator Amir, Ben Turner is outstanding”
The Daily Mail
“Ben Turner’s intense mix of anguish and self-loathing as Amir is both moving and painful, while Farshid Rokey is simply excellent as Hassan.”
“The best thing to be seen…so far this year.”
“A superb adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s hit novel”
