Christopher is a fifteen-year-old genius whose world is shaped by adolescence and a long absent mother. When he falls under suspicion for the murder of his neighbour's dog, his quest to identify the true culprit leads him from his home in Wiltshire to the London Underground and an earth-shattering discovery that will change his life forever.

Simon Stephens' riveting and intensely emotional re-imagining of Mark Haddon's multi-prizewinning best seller is nothing short of a triumph. Ingeniously structured as a play-within-a-play, Christopher's vivid internal world of facts, forensics and fractured families is brought to life with great heart, humour and a thrilling theatricality that packs an emotional punch.

Winner of Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Play,The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a record-breaking theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
