The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Adapted by Simon Stephens from the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time won seven Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best Play. After a sold-out run at the National Theatre and the Appollo Theatre, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is back on the West End at the Gielgud Theatre.

Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone, an Asperger’s syndrome sufferer, discovers his neighbour’s dog dead, speared by a garden fork, at seven minutes past midnight precisely. He is determined to solve this grisly murder. Struggling with the limitations of his condition, Christopher goes in search of the pieces to this puzzle but instead starts to uncover important clues about his own life.

Graham Butler as Christopher brings the boy’s inner turmoil and painful honesty uncompromisingly to life. The play includes an ingenuous mix of narrative and dramatic scenes, remaining true to the spirit of the book whilst also translating perfectly to the demands of live theatre. The stage is transformed into a giant mathematical grid by Bunny Christie’s brilliant set design and projections are used to transport the audience to different locations and to give us a glimpse into Christopher’s anguished mind. At times funny and suspenseful and at others agonising and raw, tickets to this extraordinary adaption may soon be hard to come by.

    Having read the book, I was interested to see the play but it surpassed all expectations. The staging was superb, very imaginative and extremely clever - I thought it really conveyed the story in a very creative and absorbing way. The cast were first rate but I must give a special mention to the actor who played Christopher in such an empathetic and convincing manner. He was superb. My 18 year old son was engrossed...

  • Amazing show

    23 April 2017

    This play was probably the most inspirational that I have seen. The cast were all brilliant but a special mention must go to Thomas Dennis who played the lead role of Christopher Boon, he gave an absolutely fantastic performance of what was an intense and very energetic character. The set design was also amazing. This is a not to be missed show, be sure to catch it before it closes in June.
