In this sweeping tale set in war-torn Afghanistan, two women’s lives intersect through fate. The unlikely but extraordinary friendship of Laila and Mariam helps them cope with the tyranny and tumult of life in 1990s Kabul—and leads them to an unforgettable act. A Thousand Splendid Suns, based on the best-selling novel by the author of The Kite Runner, is a haunting yet hopeful story that illuminates the strength of the human spirit.

“In this play, to be a hero is to love; in a world of hate and fear—in any world—there is no more courageous act.” –San Francisco Chronicle


A Thousand Splendid Suns may take its time, but the pay-off is worth it. More than simply providing a look into the lives of women inside a gruesome world of which we have had little access beyond our television news, there is a universality that provides its biggest resonance. It reminds us of the resilience of the human spirit, and that with darkness can also come light.”Vancouver Presents
