The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Based on the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliot, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a thrilling new stage play from the National Theatre, hailed by the Times as 'A phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle'.

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, 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. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
