No, you’re not dreaming. The smash-hit, multi-award-winning National Theatre production of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is returning to London at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.
15-year-old Christopher stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It’s 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 and is exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has been seen by more than 3 million people worldwide, with international tours in Amsterdam, Toronto, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney and Perth. It transferred to London’s West End following a sold-out run at the National Theatre’s Cottesloe Theatre, where it originated in September 2012. It played at the Apollo Theatre before moving to the Gielgud Theatre and then the Piccadilly Theatre.
The winner of 7 Olivier Awards and 5 Tony Awards including Best Play, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to life in a beautiful display of heartfelt drama, stunning choreography, and showstopping sets. The show is adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott.
