Following a critically acclaimed UK and international tour, the smash hit National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is returning to London for a strictly limited season.
Adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott, the play brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.
Christopher, 15 years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, speared with a garden fork. The time 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. Christopher 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 turns his world upside down.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards including Best Play.
