This Literature to Life award winner features 50 minutes of performance from the first half of the best-selling novel about the relationship of two boys: Amir, a privileged Pashtun; and Hassan, a Hazara servant.

Through the eyes of the young protagonist Amir, the actor takes the audience on a heartbreaking journey of friendship and betrayal in a society of severe class division. The adaptation mirrors the original short story written by Khaled Hosseini and utilizes original Afghani music as a backdrop for the performance.
