Right at the top at the back on the right hand side facing the stage got the tickets for £15 each because of the safety rail which wasn't a problem at all. The kite runner was an excellent play very simply well done with the use of a large rug and light/patterns to depict different environments. It was sad and... More

What an amazing experience. So much variation with a relatively small cast. The Wyndham is a very personal atmosphere, not too big and was packed every single seat. In the stalls we felt like it was one to one with the main actor in the narrated style. It's a brilliant story and so well adapted to the stage. I wish... More

Can honestly say this was the most thought provoking performance I have ever seen in any theatre. Ben Turner had the audience eating out of the palm of his hands. The cast were superb in telling a story with passion and vibrancy whilst the percussionist aided in taking you on a journey to Afghanistan to relive the story. A very... More

Wyndham's theatre London Uk. Great performance. Difficult to create a play from this detailed book but it was cleverly translated to stage and worked well. Cast received standing ovation.

An emotional roller coaster of the best kind. An education on a side of the world which I know nothing about and a very human story. The Kite Runner leaves you thinking about your own life and the impact you have on the world around you as well as making you wonder what it's like to live in other areas... More

This is a really nice theatre. Very well maintained and the decor is all in its original condition. We had box seats (Box 1) and it was really nice having our own private space and no one sitting infront of us. The view was restricted though, I would say you couldn't see 30% of the stage without leaning forward, but... More

Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. An incredibly brilliant adaptation of the book. It was breathtaking. What a shame the couple next to me rustled sweet wrappers the entire performance and the lady behind refused to turn her phone off!

We attended the Saturday matinee performance of The Kite Runner and were stunned by a fabulous production in every respect. Beautifully staged and totally gripping with extraordinary performances from the entire ensemble. Ben Turner delivers a performance of towering dignity. Bravo also to the wondrous tabla virtuoso, Hamid Khan, whose hypnotic playing provided the heartbeat of the show.

Came to see the kite runner after having read the book a while ago and it was just incredible. The actors were incredible and portrayed the book perfectly. Really emotional and funny. The set was simple and it was incredible to see the same actors portraying different people, they did this so well. So glad I went to see this.... More

My partner and I booked tickets to see the Kite Runner. He loved the book and proclaimed it to be one of his favourites. I went along with an open mind and blind to the synopsis. I was blown away at how well the story was told. The actors were brilliant and the performance was told with such earnest and... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden.

If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
