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.

Located on the south-east corner of Arts Commons, the traditional style of the Max Bell theatre breathes elegance, and is home to one of Calgary’s foremost theatre companies, Theatre Calgary.
A proscenium theatre, Max Bell Theatre has wrap-around seating on three levels and is versatile in scope through its adjustable seating and staging features. Moveable hinged box seats on both sides of the auditorium near the stage can be angled toward centre stage, left flat against the side walls or positioned somewhere in between creating a proscenium opening which can be adjusted from 35 to 75 feet in width. In 2016, Max Bell Theatre received a major face-lift, with all of its seats replaced, and a new paint job throughout. The audio systems in the theatre were upgraded from analog, to state-of-the-art digital in 2014, and today it remains at the top of industry standard for theatres in Canada.
