“A phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle” The Times
Evening Standard, Daily Mail, Sunday Express, Sunday Telegraph, The Independent, The Mail on Sunday, The Times

Winner of five Tony Awards® and seven Oliviers including Best Play, Best Design, and Best Director this thrilling production from Britain's National Theatre has been hailed by The Times as “a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle.” 

Based on Mark Haddon’s 2003 best-selling novel, itself winner of 17 international awards, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Timedirected by Marianne Elliott of War Horse fame, has been a smash hit in London's West End and on Broadway, and has thrilled a global audience via screening as a “Live from the NT” film screening. 

15-year-old Christopher Boone 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. When Christopher falls under suspicion of killing his neighbour’s dog, his detective work to identify the true culprit takes him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside down. The Curious Incidentis a story about all of us, a story about difference, about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way.

Playwright Simon Stephens has adapted Mark Haddon’s book for the stage in a production which is brought to thrilling life by Bunny Christie’s dazzling high-technology set design, with lighting by Paule Constable and video design by Finn Ross. This acclaimed production from the National Theatre of Great Britain features a full UK cast and is a global phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
