At the 2013 Laurence Olivier Awards, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time
was the winner of a remarkable seven awards, equalling the record breaking number received by Matilda in 2012.
Including: Best New Play, Best Actor – Luke Treadaway, Best Director – Marianne Elliott, and Award for Best Set Design; the latest transfer from the prolific National Theatre is something to truly celebrate.
Adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, this incredible new show was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike during its sell-out run at the National's Cottesloe Theatre, and set a new record with its NT Live broadcast to worldwide cinemas, being seen by over 40,000 people in the UK alone.
Now firmly established in the West End, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is irrefutably the theatre event of 2013.
Luke Treadaway recreates his ‘astonishing' (Time Out) performance as Christopher Boone, the fifteen year old maths genius with behavioural problems. Treadaway is joined by Matthew Barker, Niamh Cusack, Sophie Duval, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, Nick Sidi and Howard Ward, also from the original cast.
Christopher stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.
He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
