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.

  • Beautiful Balance Between Theme and Effects

    22 March 2017

    If you heard this is "an autism play," read more. Yes, this work presents a powerful dramatization of the thought processes and challenges of a young man on the spectrum, but it does so it an incredibly vivid and fascinating way, incorporating stage effects that will blow you away. And of course it's not just about the subject of autism but about much greater concerns that subject brings up: of fidelity, and the nature of truth and love--even play-acting. It's just wonderful. Go.
