The professional theatre company, Literature to Life, brings the New York Times bestseller and international classic, The Kite Runner, to life in a stunning solo performance that audiences will be discussing for days.
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 virtuosic performer. Reserved Seating $16 adult, $10 student.

Attendees are invited to attend an interactive discussion 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.
