The National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time will transfer to the West End’s Apollo Theatre on 12 March following its sell-out run at NT Cottesloe theatre, which ended on 27 October.
The play is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning 2003 novel about 15 year old Christopher Boone, who uses facts, forensics and systemised data (a symptom of his autistic-like behaviour) to launch an investigation into finding the killer of his neighbour’s dog.
Luke Treadaway, who received widespread critical acclaim for his portrayal of Christopher, will reprise the role when the play opens at the Apollo next year. The rest of the West End cast is yet to be announced.
Treadaway made his stage debut in Saint Joan at the National Theatre, which he followed up by playing Albert in the original production of War Horse at the same venue. His film and television appearances include Clash of the Titans and the recent ITV adaption of Ruth Rendell’s thriller Thirteen Steps Down.
The Curious Incident… was designed by Bunny Christie, with lighting by Paul Constable and video design by Finn Ross. The movement direction is by Scott Graham and music and sound is by Adrian Sutton and Ian Dickinson.
