The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time tickets

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, following an acclaimed UK and International tour.

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.

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 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.

It was not my first time but last night didn’t disappoint me, it is an excellent play! There was a small hiccup before entering to the theatre, the queue to collect the tickets were long and we were afraid that we would have missed the beginning of the play. Luckily, everyone was happy but it spoiled a bit the customer experience. Wishing the whole crew the best for the remaining days of the performance.😀

Loved the show as much as the fantastic book. Took my 12 year old son and husband and they enjoyed it as much as me.

Thoroughly enjoyed the book and have wanted to see the play for years . So glad I caught it before the end. Excellent performances and visuals. Great humour and also sadness.
