The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time

Details

adapted by Simon Stephens, based on the novel by Mark Haddon

Christopher, 15 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 and is exceptional at maths, but he is 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 Christopher's detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside-down.

Simon Stephens' adaption of Mark Haddon's bestselling, award-winning novel, offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous tale.

The professional production premiered at the Royal National Theatre in 2012 and subsequently transferred to the West End and Broadway.
