The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time London Tickets
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It 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 in an attempt to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.
Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, detests being touched and distrusts strangers. But now his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his whole world upside down.
Review by Christina Care
This is Christopher’s tale, his quirks and peculiarities particular to him, and it is also an important societal story, something the play is able to achieve beyond the scope of the novel, as the worldview expands to deliver us a look into the lives of those who live with, support, and teach Christopher.
It is not a short play, but this is a night out that you and the family will never forget. Expect to find yourself both laughing and crying in this witty, poignant story, expertly designed and delivered to create an unforgettable theatre experience.
