The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
27 June–1 July 2018
The National Theatre of Great Britain’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of five Tony Awards® and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play, Best Director and Best Design. Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs this “triumphant” (Sunday Telegraph, UK) adaptation by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens who brings Mark Haddon’s internationally best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math 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. When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, his detective work to identify the true culprit, takes him on a journey that upturns his world.
Featuring remarkable, immersive staging and a full British and Irish cast, this is a global theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
★★★★★ “A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” Evening Standard
