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 Gielgud Theatre.

Christopher Boone is a fifteen year old maths genius on the autistic spectrum – he has an extraordinary brain but he is ill-equipped 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.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Reviews
Read the book - loved it; saw the play - loved, loved, loved it.
Took my tow teenagers to this as it was something a bit different from the norm and we were all SOOOO impressed by this excellent piece of theatre. The acting, the staging, the lighting, the bitter sweet script.
Can't recommend this play enough for adult theatre-goers and those with older children (ages 11yrs +) .
