Carey Perloff

A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS

Adapted by Ursula Rani Sarma

Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini

Original music written and performed by David Coulter

A.C.T. & THEATRE CALGARY, 2017


"This theatrical presentation, a collaboration between San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theater and Canada’s Theatre Calgary, is in many ways more modern than the novel that inspired it. Directed with a sure hand by Carey Perloff, the production is more atmospherically suggestive than literal. Perloff, who is stepping down after a long and distinguished tenure as artistic director of A.C.T., where “Suns” had its premiere last year, has created a theatrical environment that’s agile enough to handle the novel’s sweep of history."

–– LOS ANGELES TIMES


"The real test of a stage adaptation is not whether the play can match the book, but whether it can be valued for its own artistic merits. I feel confident that Theatre Calgary and A.C.T. will ace this test."

KHALED HOSSEINI
