An extraordinary story about the strength of the human spirit, 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.
The March 24 matinee is a benefit performance supporting Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. The performance will be followed by a panel discussion, Beyond the Headlines: What Does the Future Hold for Afghanistan?
