Based on the international best-selling novel by Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns is the epic story of three generations of Afghan women who are bound together by marriage, family, and a secret past, amid the war-torn streets of modern-day Kabul. Adapted for the stage by acclaimed Irish-Indian playwright Ursula Rani Sarma, this stunning production reunites many of the original cast members and will, once again, feature live music from renowned composer and saw player David Coulter.
