A Thousand Splendid Suns

Adapted by Ursula Rani Sarma
Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini
Directed by Carey Perloff
“Gorgeously captivating performance.”
Adapted from the New York Times bestselling novel by Khaled Hosseini (Kite Runner), the lives of two Afghan women are inextricably bound together. In the war-ravaged Kabul, Miriam and Laila become unlikely allies in the face of the insurmountable odds of a brutal and oppressive way of life. Hopes of a new life lead to an unselfish and shocking decision, changing the course of their futures forever. Called “emotionally stirring” (Los Angeles Times), this gripping and heart-rending fight for survival will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
A Thousand Splendid Suns is generously sponsored by Beth Newburger Schwartz and Michele and Allan Berman.
A Thousand Splendid Suns runs approximately two and a half hours, including one 15-minute intermission.
