Why Watch The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Christopher is a 15-year-old boy who discovers the dead body of his neighbors’ dog. The dog has been speared with a garden fork at exactly 7-minutes past midnight. Since Christopher is caught standing over the body, he is held under suspicion. Christopher, however, knows he is innocent and takes it upon himself to solve the case and prove his innocence. Forbidden by his father to carry out any detective work, he must go embark on this venture all alone. Will Christopher’s intelligence allow him to get to the bottom of the mystery?
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is based on Mark Haddon’s renowned books of the same name. The original West End production won an astonishing 7 Olivier Awards and went on to be transferred to Broadway where it won 5 Tony Awards. Director Marianne Elliott was praised by critics for brilliantly capturing a series of encounters between the numerous characters in the play. The humor is perfectly timed, giving much-needed respite during particularly serious sequences in the production. All in all, a breathtaking production awaits you at one of London’s largest theaters!
