Bay Area News Group

A.C.T. is thrilled to announce the world-premiere theatrical adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns. The epic story of three generations of Afghan women and their remarkable resilience, A Thousand Splendid Suns  is set amidst the war-torn streets of modern-day Kabul. Beautiful Laila, unmarried and pregnant, is forced to marry her older neighbor when her family and home are torn apart. After she forges an extraordinary and unlikely friendship with Mariam, her husband’s first wife, the two women find the hope and strength to raise a new generation. A stunning new production featuring live music from renowned composer and saw player David Coulter. “Hosseini’s writing makes our hearts ache, our stomachs clench, and our emotions reel” (USA Today).

Performances take place at A.C.T.’s Geary Theater, 415 Geary Street, San Francisco
