Back by popular demand, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will tour the UK and Ireland this Autumn.
Curious Incident will also play for a limited 7 week run in London at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre (18 November 2020 – 10 January 2021) following the acclaimed run of War Horse in 2019.
Curious Incident has been seen by more than five million people worldwide, including two UK tours, two West End runs, a Broadway transfer, tours to the Netherlands, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Australia and 30 cities across the USA.
The play tells the story of Christopher John Francis Boone, who is fifteen years old. He stands besides Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who killed Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is 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 distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
Mark Haddon’s novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was published in 2003 and has sold more than 5.5 million copies world-wide.
