Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time
Play by Simon Stephens
Based on the novel by Mark Haddon
Directed by: Corey Wilson
Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards and five 2015 Tony Awards®, including Best Play, this thrilling production has been seen by over three million people worldwide and has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle.’
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
Mark Haddon’s novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was published in 2003 and was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in the US, Japan, Holland and Italy, as well as the prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004. The novel has been translated into 44 languages and sold more than 5.5 million copies world-wide.
Suitable for 11yrs+. There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel.
