The Barrymore Theatre
Winner of 7 Olivier Awards including Best New Play, the acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings Mark Haddon's internationally best-selling novel to thrilling life in a dazzling adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens. Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
Called “thrilling,” “exhilarating” and “inspired” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a record-breaking phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
