    Great view of the stage, legroom is a bit tight but no worse than most.

    100% total rating The Kite Runner, 24th June 2017
    Amazing moving and evocative play. Very clever set and incredible cast, especially the lead role.
    I'm only 5ft 2in so leg room never a problem. Safety rail was only a slight issue but I could see most of the stage. Overall very happy to see such a great play for less than £20.

    Could see all of the stage, the only issue is the rake. If you get a tall person in front of you and you are short you would be in trouble.

    Front row seat that offers great view and lots of legroom.
The Stalls at the Playhouse Theatre, tend to give the best views, although towards the rear and overhang from the Circle, can ever so slightly restrict views of the tops of sets.

The front and centre of the Dress Circle can also be advisable, however a safety rail can encroach on views for patrons in the very front row. The Upper Circle generally has some of the cheapest seats, however it is very distant to the stage and has incredibly restricted legroom.

The Kite Runner is a haunting yet beautiful story of friendship that crosses both cultural and international borders. Following a hugely successful run at the start of 2017, The Kite Runner will once again return to the West End stage for another limited run at The Playhouse Theatre, with performances running from 8th June 2017 to 29th July 2017.

The play depicts one man’s struggle to face up to his own personal history and also find redemption, in a moving and powerful tale of friendship, which has always been in the shadow of guilt and betrayal.

Beginning in Afghanistan, a divided country on the brink of way, The Kite Runner tells the story of two friends who are dramatically ripped apart forever. On a peaceful day in Kabul, with anticipation in the air and the overwhelming happiness of the annual kite tournament, neither Amir or Hassan can predict the horrible events that will change their lives forever.

After touring round the UK and delighting audiences all around the country, the show first opened to great acclaim at the Wyndham’s Theatre in December 2016, receiving 5 stars from The Stage and being described as ‘a seriously good piece of storytelling’ and ‘an enthralling tale beautifully told’.

The Kite Runner was originally written as a book by Khaled Hosseini, the award-winning American writer who was originally born in Kabul in Afghanistan. Being first released in 2003, the book sold a million copies in the first two years, slowly building its success before becoming a New York Times best seller in March 2005 and continuing to be so for over two years.

Following its publication The Kite Runner was transformed into a film starring Ahmad Khan Mamoodzada, Homayoun Ershadi and Khalid Aballa, being directed by Marc Foster and winning a huge range of awards.

The play is adapted by Matthew Spangler, the American playwright who has previously received great praise for his plays Albatross and Tortilla Curtain, as well as winning three Elliot Norton Awards.

The Kite Runner returns to the West End for another run of the acclaimed play for a limited period at the Playhouse Theatre in London, with performances set to begin on 8th June 2017 and running until 29th July 2017.
The Kite Runner is a beautiful and poignant tale, perfect for anyone who enjoys impactful drama. Following its hugely popular run earlier on in 2017 at the Wyndham’s Theatre, this is the perfect opportunity for those who missed it the first time round to have a chance to see this unforgettable story.
