The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-TIme
- Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 07:00pm
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is one of the most exciting and successful plays in recent years. Based on Mark Haddon’s 2003 bestseller, the adaptation by Simon Stephens draws us into the strange and brilliant mind of Christopher, a 15-year-old autistic boy.
Part mystery, part family drama, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time invites the audience to see the world through Christopher’s eyes as he valiantly maneuvers through a confusing world in an effort to solve the mystery of who killed his neighbor’s dog.
Alternately funny, enthralling, heart-wrenching and triumphant, this 2012 play took the world by storm. Winner of seven Olivier Awards as well as the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Play.
