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.

Third visit to see this show since its launch at the NT& it’s as good as ever. We were in row T which was a slightly restricted view which we’d not anticipated but not disastrous. Audience were truely awful - phone calls, text messages, getting drunk on bottles of wine bought in the bar, celebratory chinking of glasses, & constant rustling of sweet bags! Arghhh

Great performances. Set amazing and rely clever. Some really funny bits. Excellent venue, with enough toilets and ease of the interval drinks, which you could then take in with you. All good

We thoroughly enjoyed the show. The set was really clever and the characterisation of key members of the cast was excellent. There was humour amid a very sympathetic approach to the issues portrayed. We left the theatre feeling we had been entertained but challenged!
