The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
A New Play by Simon Stephens
Adapted from the novel by Mark Haddon
Directed by Marianne Elliott
The National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME makes its Canadian debut at the Princess of Wales Theatre.
Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs this “triumphant” (Sunday Telegraph) adaptation by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, who brings Mark Haddon's internationally best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.
Fifteen year old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math 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.
When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour's dog, his detective work to identify the true culprit takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
