A Thousand Splendid Suns at Northern Stage

About

The UK stage premiere of Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel.

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 to her, but his true intentions soon become clear when he takes Laila as his second wife.

Rasheed's first wife Mariam is a captive to her husband's whim. She has no choice but to accept her younger, and now pregnant, rival. The war rages on and as the years pass the country grows more oppressive, and so does Rasheed. But as Laila's daughter Aziza grows up, the three women develop a bond that may offer their only escape.

From the writer of The Kite Runner, this is the powerful story of three generations of women discovering strength in unity and finding hope in the unlikeliest of places.
