The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Based on the book by Mark Haddon, Adapted by Simon Stephens and Directed by Karen Blunden. Production dates - 13 & 14 July. Kindly note that this is a "PG" rated production - some themes and strong language may not be suitable for younger children.Here's a murder mystery story, told by someone with a different view of life. Christopher, fifteen 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’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling, award-winning novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time offers a richly theatrical exploration of this touching and bleakly humorous tale.

“Be prepared to have all your emotional and sensory buttons pushed, including a few you may have not known existed.” – The New York Times
