2014 gets more Curious

First Published 3 May 2013, Last Updated 3 May 2013

Following its recent success at the Olivier Awards with MasterCard, the National Theatre’s hit production of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has extended its booking period to 25 October 2014, releasing an additional 250,000 tickets for the celebrated show.

Simon Stephens’ acclaimed adaptation, which opened at the National’s Cottesloe theatre in August last year before transferring to the Apollo, walked away with seven awards – including the coveted accolade for MasterCard Best New Play – at Sunday’s ceremony, tying with last year’s big winner Matilda The Musical as the recipient of the most Olivier Awards in one night.

Directed by Marianne Elliott, whose work on the production was rewarded with the prize for Best Director, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time features a cast including Olivier Award winner Luke Treadaway, Holly Aird, Matthew Barker, Sophie Duval, Seán Gleeson, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, Nick Sidi, Tilly Tremayne and Howard Ward.

Based on Mark Haddon’s Booker Prize-winning novel, the production tells the story of Christopher, a teenager with behavioural difficulties who following the discovery of his neighbour’s dead dog embarks on a mission to find the person responsible.

Described by Official London Theatre’s Charlotte Marshall as “a visual spectacular” when it transferred to the West End in March, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time’s creative team was also recognised at last weekend’s awards, with set designers Bunny Christie and Finn Ross, lighting designer Paule Constable and sound designers Ian Dickinson and Adrian Sutton all taking home awards, while Nicola Walker, who played Christopher’s mother Judy when it played at the South Bank venue, collected the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

While the show is now booking to October next year, the current cast is confirmed to stay with the hugely successful production until September 2013.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.
