The National Theatre’s acclaimed stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, will return to London from June 1014. The award winning play will now be at the Gieldgud Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue from 24 June 2014.
Now with SEVEN Olivier Awards under its belt – including Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director, 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.
Current cast : Mike Noble as Christopher with Jack Loxton playing the role at certain performances, Amanda Drew, Rakie Ayola, Trevor Fox, Gay Soper, Golda Rosheuvel, Daniel Casey, Paul Stocker, Jo Dockery and Patrick Driver.
The Curious Incident will open again at the Gielgud theatre on 24th June 2014 when further breaks will be available. Nearby hotels include the Thistle Trafalgar Square, the five star Le Meridien and Westbury hotels.
The four star Radisson Blu Edwardian Leicester Square is also very close, but if you want a bargain budget break then look no further than the Covent Garden Travelodge!
