“Beautiful and bizarre”
– The Guardian
The hype is well-deserved – The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time pays perfect homage to the already starkly unusual nature and delivery of the novel by being equally unusual. Telling the story of Christopher John Francis Boone, the 15-year old autistic mathemetician, who, upon finding his neighbour’s dog dead in the yard, sets about solving the mystery of who killed it, the onstage adaption of the novel brings Christoher’s mindset and thought processes to life onstage in new and unexpected ways.
“Beautiful, ingenious and deeply-felt”
– The Telegraph
The play utilises state-of-the-art lights and staging to construct something like a virtual reality that takes audiences right inside Christopher’s highly logical mind, whilst never drowning plot or character, as is only too often done, under special effects. Far from it – the play wholeheartedly and unflinchingly embraces the directness and honesty that made the novel so unique. Viewers can expect to see what is nothing other less than a masterpiece – a theatrical experience that will immerse you totally in a mind that is not your own.
“Dazzling hi-tech drama”
– Time Out
As beautifully strange as it is affecting, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is truly unmissable. Book early to be sure of your seats!
