Photos: The Old Globe’s Sweeping Production of ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’

"A Thousand Splendid Suns," based on the best-selling book by Khaled Hosseini, takes audiences to 1990s Kabul, where we follow three generations of Afghan women and their resilience and strength during tough circumstances and the friendships that form as a result. Before heading to the show, check out the photos from The Old Globe's production. The play runs from May 12 to June 17.
