The National Theatre has announced two extra matinees for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Tuesday 14 February and Tuesday 30 May 2017. Curious Incident has its final West End performance at the Gielgud Theatre on Saturday 3 June 2017.
The Olivier and Tony Award®-winning play was adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott. It is the recipient of a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design – more Oliviers than any other single play in the history of the West End.
The show tells the story of 15 year old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain; and is exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to solve a mystery of who killed his neighbour’s dog, but his detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is also on a major tour of the UK and Ireland.
