The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

September, 2020

The plot follows fifteen-year-old Christopher — on the autism spectrum — who has an extraordinary mind and a mystery to solve. Someone has killed the next-door neighbor’s dog with a garden fork and Christopher himself is a suspect. Determined to discover the true culprit, Christopher embarks on a detective journey, leading him to an earth-shattering discovery that will change his life forever.

This Simon Stephens’s Tony Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel offers a richly theatrical exploration of this equally humorous and heartbreaking story.

"
True to the original novel, Simon Stephens’s version drips with ideas.
