Marianne Elliott‘s acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to London this November for seven weeks only.
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 booking until 9 January 2022 at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, London.
What is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time about?
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.

This production contains strobe lighting, smoke effects, high intensity video & light effects, and loud sound effects.
There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show.
Latecomers will be asked to wait whilst watching the latecomers' monitor until a scene called ‘The Street’ before being allowed into the auditorium. This is approximately 15 minutes into Act 1. Audience members arriving after this time will be required to wait until the interval.
