About The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the National Theatre's highly acclaimed production based on Mark Haddon's award-winning novel transfers to the West End's Gielgud Theatre

In The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, fifteen years old Christopher stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has 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, 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.

Winner of record-breaking 7 Olivier Awards including Best Actor to Luke Treadaway, Best Director to Marianne Elliott, Best Acress in Supporting Role to Nicola Walker and White Light award for Lighting Design and Best Sound Design to Paule Constable and Ian Dickinson & Adrian Sutton respectively.
