The National Theatre’s hit production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will end its West End run in June 2017.
Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best selling novel follows the story of Christopher Boone, a young boy who sets out on a detective mission to work out who killed his neighbour’s dog.
Directed by Marianne Elliott the show won seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards, and became the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade.
The original production opened at the Cottesloe Theatre in September 2012 with Luke Treadaway playing Christopher Boone and transferred into the West End in March 2013; the final performance will be 3 June 2017 at the Gielgud Theatre.
The final West End cast will include Joseph Ayre as Christopher Boone, Jo Castleton as Siobhan, Nicolas Tennant as Ed, Sarah Stanley as Judy, Jacqueline Clarke as Mrs Alexander, Amanda Posener as Mrs Shears, Ross Waiton as Roger Shears, Matthew Trevannion as Mr Thompson, Gemma Knight Jones as No.40/Punk Girl, David Nellist as Reverend Peters, and Thomas Dennis as alternate Christopher.
The show embarks on a UK tour from January 2017.
