The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Screening)
“Magical and Moving.”
“Astonishing and Unmissable.”
“A beautiful, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.”
“Nothing short of a triumph.”
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.
Loved by reviewers and audiences alike, National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of five Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play, Best Director and Best Design.
