A Thousand Splendid Suns

Based on the bestselling novel by the author of The Kite Runner, this hauntingly beautiful story reveals the strength of the human spirit. In war-torn Afghanistan, two women are brought together by fate and cruelty. Together they will forge an unlikely friendship that leads to an act of unbreakable love. 

Audiences showed tremendous curiosity and support for our 2013 production of The Kite Runner. Hearing about this, the Artistic Director of a.c.t., Carey Perloff, contacted Khaled Hosseini, and together we are happily launching this newest theatrical adaptation. This is an international collaboration of a truly international story.
- Dennis
The real test of a stage adaptation is not whether the play can match the book, but whether it can be valued for its own artistic merits. I feel confident that Theatre Calgary and A.C.T. will ace this test.
