Splendid sequel

Adapted from the novel by Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns is the spiritual sequel to The Kite Runner.

In 1992 in an Afghanistan ravaged by war, an orphaned Laila is left alone in an increasingly threatening world. Her older neighbour Rasheed is quick to open his home and takes Laila as his second wife. Rasheed’s first wife Mariam has no choice but to accept her younger, and now pregnant, rival. As the Taliban take over, life for all of them becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear, and the two women find themselves unlikely allies.

‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ is appearing at Birmingham Rep from Thursday 2 May to Saturday 18 May, with tickets priced at £15. Visit birmingham-rep.co.uk for show times and booking details.
