Seven-time Olivier Award-winning play The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will return to the West End this year.

The smash-hit National Theatre production, which also won five Tony Awards on Broadway, will make the Piccadilly Theatre its third London home from 29 November.

The show will play a limited run until 23 February 2019.

The announcement also completes a remarkable trifecta for director Marianne Elliott; this November, she will have three shows playing in London (with War Horse returning to the National Theatre, and Company playing at the Gielgud Theatre).

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has been seen by more than 3 million people worldwide, first playing at the National Theatre in September 2012. It subsequently transferred to the West End’s Apollo Theatre and then the Gielgud, where its latest London run concluded in June 2017.

Adapted by Simon Stephens from the novel by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident… tells the story of 15 year-old Christopher John Francis Boone, who finds Mrs Shears’ dog speared with a garden fork at seven minutes past midnight. Christopher has a remarkable brain and capacity for maths, but is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life – and his detective work is set to take him on a frightening journey that turns his world upside down.

A hit with audiences around the world, tickets for The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time are available now!

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

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.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
