The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Marianne Elliott‘s acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to London this Autumn.

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards – including Best New Play and the Best Director award, the play is based on Mark Haddon’s multi-award winning and best selling novel.

Hailed as ‘extraordinary,’ ‘dazzling’ and ‘unmissable’ by Time Magazine, this theatrical phenomenon is simply not to be missed.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is running from 18 November 2020 until 10 January 2021 at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

Christopher, fifteen years old, 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.

Who’s in it? Curious Incident.. Cast

Casting for Curious Incident… is to be announced.
