The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time


September 26, 2019 – October 20, 2019

Based on the novel by Mark Haddon | Adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens

Regional Premiere! Winner of the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play! Fifteen-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. It’s seven 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 the crime. His detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

Recommended for ages 14+

“This adaptation by the acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens is intensely, innately theatrical; it is also funny and extremely moving…resonates with quality.” –Telegraph (London).

“…just terrific…a profoundly moving play about adolescence, fractured families, mathematics, colours and lights…dazzling.” –Independent (London).

“A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” –Evening Standard (London).
