About this show

Based on Mark Haddon's award-winning 2003 novel, the National Theatre's acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott. Luke Treadaway recreates his central performance as Christopher Boone, the 15 year-old maths genius with behavioural problems who sets off to solve the mystery of his neighbour's dogs death. The dog 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.
