The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Based on the Novel by Mark Haddon and Adapted by Simon Stephens Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in London (including Best New Play) & 5 Tony Awards (including Best Play) and is considered by many around the world to be one of the greatest scripts written in the 21st Century!
15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but 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. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
“This adaptation by the acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens is intensely, innately theatrical; it is also funny and extremely moving…resonates with quality.” -The Telegraph (London)
“:…just terrific…a profoundly moving play about adolescence, fractured families, mathematics, colors and lights…dazzling.” –The Independent (London)
