The National Theatre’s acclaimed stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, is now at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue until 25th October 2014!
Now with SEVEN Olivier Awards under its belt – including Best Actor (Luke Treadaway), Best Supporting Actress (Nicola Walker) and Best Director (Marianne Elliott), The Curious Incident… has been adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens.
Christopher Boone is a fifteen year old maths genius with behavioural problems – he has extraordinary brain but he is illequipped to interpret everyday life: he hates being touched and is distrustful of strangers. But at seven minutes past midnight he comes under suspicion of killing Wellington, the pet dog of neighbour, Mrs Spears. Driven beyond the comfort zone of the end of his street, Christopher sets out on a frightening journey to prove his innocence – meticulously recording each fact as he discovers it, in the book he is writing, to solve the crime.
Much of the cast remain the same for the West End run with Luke Treadaway recreating his astonishing performance as Christopher. He will be joined by original cast members Niamh Cusack, Nicola Walker, Sophie Duval, Howard Ward, Matthew Barker, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty and Nick Sidi.
The Curious Incident is at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue close to Piccadilly Circus underground station. This will take you out to the hotels in Kensington and Knightsbridge quicky and easily. In the other direction it heads of to Bloomsbury where a myriad of great 4 star hotels are situated.
If you don’t fancy the tube back to the theatre look out for the 5 star Le Meridien, the four star Radison Edwardian Leicester Square or the three star St Giles Hotel.
However, when narrowing down the list of hotels set the Distance filter to 2 miles and wherever you chose will be easy to get back to after the show.
