The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Piccadilly Theatre · 29 NOV - 27 APR

Following an acclaimed UK and International tour, the smash-hit National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to London for a strictly limited season.

“Back on the West End to give theatre-goers an enthusiastic lick all over, Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel about Christopher, a teenager with Asperger’s who is determined to find out who has killed the neighbour’s dog, is a thing of beauty. Not least because it plays with the idea of theatre as a lie as it tells the story of a truth-seeker and truth-teller, Christopher. It’s directed and designed with fizzy invention by Marianne Elliott and Bunny Christie — who are also behind that other West End hit, Company. It is a moving examination of the lies adults tell, the pain of love and how life is never neat and tidy.”

Overview

Christopher 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.

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards and 5 Tony Awards® including ‘Best Play’, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage, adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winning director Marianne Elliott.

Critic reviews

The National Theatre’s stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is as applaudable, successful and insightful as the original novel

The Upcoming

A prime example of how to tell a moving story in a compelling and energetic way, and this new run looks set to bring this touching story to a whole new audience

Theatre Weekly

It’s the commanding cast, led by Joshua Jenkins, that makes the show an unqualified success

Londonist

This dazzling hi-tech drama is a story of a family struggling to cope

Time Out

The novel gets you inside Christopher's head but the stage version does more, giving Christopher's internal response to the world an external manifestation. That world is often a surreal and scary place, but oddly beautiful and bizarre, too

The Guardian

Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon's novel retains its ingenuity and pathos

The Arts Desk

Marianne Elliott’s production is beautiful, ingenious and deeply-felt
