Update – 11/1/23:
We’d like to share a quick update on style and accents from our creative team: while they would like to hear actors’ facility with dialect and accents, the accents in THE KITE RUNNER can be very light. For the characters of AMIR and SORAYA, their American accents can become more prominent in later scenes as they have spent more time away from Afghanistan. Stylistically, the team would like to highlight the poetic nature of the play; actors are encouraged to tell the story without fully reliving it.
Thank you for taping for THE KITE RUNNER. We look forward to reviewing your audition!
