The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Booking Info

The National Theatre’s smash hit production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to London this Autumn

Winner of the Olivier Award and Tony Award® for Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings Mark Haddon’s international best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage in a dazzling adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, Company).

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. He is exceptional at maths, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.

Please note: There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show.
This production contains strobe lighting, smoke effects, high intensity video and lighting effects, and loud sound effects.
