Luke Treadaway leads the West End in the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
It’s hard to imagine getting better reviews for a play than those for Luke Treadaway’s performance as Christopher in the National’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Michael Billington in the Guardian: “A remarkable performance from Luke Treadaway captures all the hero’s zeal, obduracy and terror of tactile contact”; Laura Thompson in the Telegraph: “Luke Treadaway’s performance as Christopher would be called a tour-de-force, except that this misses the terrible vulnerability at its heart”; Henry Hitchings in the Standard: ” It’s a performance of great physical poise and stunning conviction”; and TimeOut’s “Luke Treadaway is astonishing”.
Luke’s theatre credits include War Horse and Saint Joan at the National Theatre, Piranha Heights at the Soho Theatre and Over There at the Royal Court Theatre alongside his twin brother Harry.
Screen work includes TV drama Clapham Junction and The Innocence Project, and films Wasteland, Get Lucky, St George’s Day, Cheerful Weather for the Wedding, You Instead, Late Bloomers, Attack the Block, Killing Bono, The Whistleblower, Clash of the Titans, Heartless and Brothers of the Head.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, transfers from the National to the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue and also stars Niamh Cusack.
