Have read the book and seen the movie. And the play added a new dimension. Very well acted and the set design was excellent. Great venue. A must see.

I had not read the book, I had not seen the film...I abhor brutality so avoided The Kite Runner. Sunday was coming up and I had no plans and a trip out to Watertown... continued

loved the play--extremely well done. Thjere is some difficulty hearing. Is it the sound system or the Afghani accents?
