About the Show
Based on Mark Haddon’s engaging and best-selling 2003 novel, the play first opened at National Theatre’s Cottesloe Theatre in 2012. The West End transfer of the show won big at the 2013 Olivier Awards, bagging 7 awards in total – a record for a play in the West End at the time! The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings the thrilling tale penned by Haddon to life on stage in spectacular fashion. The novel has been adapted for the stage by Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens. Marianne Elliott, herself an Olivier and Tony Award-winning director, has directed the show. The show’s set design is by Bunny Christie, with lighting by Paule Constable, and video design by Finn Ross. The show’s music has been composed by Adrian Sutton and sound design has been handled by Ian Dickinson.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the story of 14-year old Christopher. Christopher is blessed with a sharp brain and has complete command over maths but has trouble dealing with and understanding his everyday life. The troubled boy has never explored the world around him alone, hates being touched even by his family members and doesn't trust strangers. When the story begins, Christopher finds himself beside Mrs. Shears’ dead dog. The dog has been stabbed with a garden fork, the time is 12:07 and the boy is under suspicion.
Christopher begins his investigation of the murder of poor Wellington by recording each fact in a book. Little does the tiny detective know that his detective work, which his father does not approve of, will propel him into an unforeseen journey that will change the course of his life. The mesmerizing story has been named ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle' by The Times.
