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!
Beautifully and sensitively brought to life. Brilliantly produced.... don't miss this gem
I first saw Curious Incident in Birmingham when it was on tour. So I couldn’t wait to take the opportunity to go and see it again when it went back to the west end. The way this book has been dramatised is incredible. It gives such a stark view of how autism feels for the sufferer and their families and yet there is humour and fun too. The choreography is seamless as the characters move around the stage in a fantastically creative way. The scenery/cube is so effective. I’m so glad I went for a second time.
The show was fantastic. The actors where full of energy it was funny and sad in bits but quite true to life for a person living with Aspergers and the play showed it well. definitely recommend watching to a friend
We really enjoyed the show and the VIP upgrade was great. Thanks to Robbie who told us about the upgrade while we were queuing to get in. Great service for upgrade from Robbie and an excellent show. Would recommend. Thanks
WHAT a show!!!! From the amazing stage set, through the impressive choreography, to the thought-provoking content - everyone should see this show!
I was rather curious how they would manage to transfer such an unconventional narrative on the stage, and the team managed brilliantly, not only managing not to mess things up, but even adding a few subtle details. Thoroughly enjoyed, would highly recommend to anyone who loved the book or is a fan of contemporary drama, you will not be disappointed.
Great show, awesome cast, brilliant set design. A thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining way to spend an evening!
Absolutely brilliant! Well done to the whole team of actors, lights, music etc. An absolutely brilliant way to visualise an amazing book which I thought would be very hard to put on stage. You made it look easy! Superb!
Amazing show and set. Everything about it was fantastic, from the seats to the acting. I would highly recommend you go and see it.
If you knew my husband then you would know that for him to say straight after the show ‘a quick cuppa and I would watch it all over again right now’ is amazing praise for the team who put on this fab show. Great acting, production and direction. I had been recommended this play by several friends and they were absolutely right. A lot of food for thought.
So very true and very cleverly done!
Really enjoyed this show. It had a good mixture of humour and seriousness.
Every moment was well worth. Amazing performances
Brilliant, it was like turning the pages of the book again.
We thoroughly enjoyed the play. It captured the heartache and emotional struggle of the parents wonderfully.
Amazing production. Everyone should go and see it before it ends !
Great play, Will recommand it to everyone!
this was a brilliant adaptation of the book
Loved it! The performance surprised us. The staging, the clever use of lighting effects, the integration of physical theatre.
Excellent cast, was very true to the book with a few extras. Would definitely see this again.
This play really brought the book to life. Powerful but simple staging made it feel like an event. Brilliant portrayal of characters, wonderful acting. We loved it. Made us all want go back to the book.
Brilliant play Great effects and really thought provoking and moving at times
I’m still musing on this play a full 18 hours after having left. An incredible production - a clever interpretation of a very inspiring piece of literature. The cast were amazing and totally on point for a complex show which never misses a beat. Special mention to Sam Newton as Christopher who was so very good indeed. A must see play on so many fronts.
The play was creative and gripping. The physical theatre was outstanding. The use of projections and lighting beautifully reflected the boy’s mind process.
I enjoyed the show and thought the stage set changes etc very clever and very different. It gives you a perspective into an interesting condition.
Fabulous production. Superb cast
Left at the interval
I'd heard good things but wasn't prepared for how moving the experience would be. Hilarious and gut-wrenching.
Pure enjoyment from beginning to end. The cast were great. The play was emotional, thought provoking and great fun. I would recommend this to anyone who hasn't seen it before it ends its season.
Amazing show . Actors and sets are like I have never seen before. Mesmerizing
Unfortunately the performance was marred by the unnecessary use of swearing which was totally inappropriate with the large number of school children in the audience. Also the flashing lights would be difficult for anyone suffering from epilepsy.
Wasn't sure what the play was about when we booked it but I would highly recommend it. The staging of this play was fantastic and very clever. A very entertaining evening..
Very moving and brilliantly adapted into play form. Very clever and great performances. Would recommend.
We read the book and I bought the tickets for my husband and son for Christmas. The play was brilliant, the audience were silently throughout just watching and listening, it really heals everyone’s attention. But please stop selling Cadbury chocolate buttons as all we could hear was the lady two rows down crinkling her packet, bery row annoying.
Definitely the best show I've been to! All the actors were exceptional. Tears and laughter throughout. I would go again tomorrow.
After enjoying this book a couple of years ago I couldn’t imagine how this could be presented on stage - well it was amazing with a brilliant cast. 😊
I had read the book but years ago and was so impressed with the interoperation into a play. The acting was fabulous especially the lead. Kept me gripped the whole way through and we both agreed it was clever, powerful, well written and well performed.
The staging was breathtaking and created, along with the great cast, a visceral insight into the experience of autism. Unforgettable.
Cast were brilliant & very well staged fantastic production . ,
I was very disappointed with this play and can't understand some of the good reviews. I thought it going to be a mystery about a dog being killed and a young boy trying to solve who did it. But it was only loosely about that. Very sparse set and a strange story really, about a young lad with Autism. Whilst the guy who played the lead part was very good, I didn't like the use of live animals in it, thought it was unnecessary. I bought the tickets as a Christmas present for my Daughter and wished I'd booked somewhere else really. Plus the theatre was freezing! I booked extra legroom seats and only one had this. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
We arrived 2 minutes late to the play and the lady in front of us was still able to get into the play. Yet we were held for 15 minutes at the bar. The staff also assumes that we were with the lady in front of us and did not make the effort to ask. There were so many people ( i think 6) that could’ve attended to us but they were just zoning out.
Very well researched problem,
Thoroughly enjoyed the play and the acting was brilliant. i loved the minium use of props but how in a short time you don't even realize it. My only concern was some swearing (f word) and people with small children should be aware of this.
