"In this play, to be a hero is to love; in a world of hate and fear – in any world – there is no more courageous act."  – San Francisco Chronicle

★ ★ ★ ★ – Calgary Sun

From its acclaimed world premiere engagement with San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) comes an extraordinary story about the strength of the human spirit. Based on the international best-selling novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns is the story of three generations of women bound together by mar­riage, family, and a secret past in war-ravaged Afghanistan. With original music by David Coulter (Kronos Quartet).

This harrowing story was meant to be adapted for the stage. It is brutal, compelling, and yet surprisingly uplifting. A.C.T. in San Francisco is one of America’s great theatre companies – debuting with us this season. This is an international collab­oration of a truly international story. Expect to be electrified.” – DENNIS GARNHUM, Artistic Director
