The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tickets
What's it all about?
Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Actor and Best Director.
Following its original sellout run at the NT’s Cottesloe theatre, Marianne Elliott’s highly acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was justly rewarded with a West End transfer.
Unforseen circumstances led to its run at the Apollo Theatre being abruptly curtailed in late 2013, but its now back in the West End at the Gielgud Theatre, as ingenious and compelling as ever.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning 2003 novel of the same name 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.
What's the story?
Fifteen-year-old Christopher stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog Wellington, who's been speared with a garden fork. It’s seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He writes down each fact of the 'case' in the hope of solving the mystery of who murdered Wellington.
Christopher has an extraordinary brain – he’s exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. Having never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When his detective work takes him to the big city lights of London his world turns upside down.
Will he be able to cope with the bustling, stressful city? And will he be able to solve the curious incident of the dog in the night-time?
Who's in it?
Joseph Ayre leads the cast as Christopher. The remaining cast includes Jo Castleton, Jaqueline Clarke, Thomas Dennis, Gemma Knight Jones, Penelope McGhie, David Nellist, Amanda Posener, Charleen Quaye, Sarah Stanley, Philip Stewart, Nicolas Tennant, Matthew Trevannion, Ross Waiton and Matt Wilman.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time reviews - staff
I read the book years ago in Italy, I hate math and drama, but this is the best show I have watched so far ! Despite the difficult topic, it's funny and clever, the spectator really walks in Cristopher's shoes. I was curious to see how they could adapt the novel in a theatrical piece, and they did it brilliantly. The dialogue was simple but touching. The scenary couldn't be better, the graph paper is the best way to explain the autistic mind and the needs of it. The use of color was brilliant and the real pet on stage gave a nice message about the importance of the pet therapy...sometimes animals can reach what humans can't.

Did You Know?
Novelist Mark Haddon has been widely praised by both the general readership and special education professionals for his sensitive portrayal of 'aspergic' Christopher Boone in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.
However, Haddon is at pains to point out that he is anything but an expert on the subjects of autism and asperger's, and intended to write a human story, not a story about a condition.
"I know very little about the subject," he writes. "I did no research for Curious Incident (other than photographing the interiors of Swindon and Paddington stations). I’d read Oliver Sacks’s essay about [autistic author] Temple Grandin and a handful of newspaper and magazine articles about, or by, people with Asperger’s and autism.
I deliberately didn’t add to this list. imagination always trumps research. I thought that if I could make Christopher real to me then he’d be real to readers. I gave him some rules to live by and some character traits and opinions, all of which I borrowed from people I know, none of whom would be labelled as having a disability. Judging by the reaction, it seems to have worked.
Curious Incident is not a book about asperger’s. It’s a novel whose central character describes himself as ‘a mathematician with some behavioural difficulties’. Indeed he never uses the words ‘asperger’s’ or ‘autism’...If anything it’s a novel about difference, about being an outsider, about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way. It’s as much a novel about us as it is about Christopher."
Winner of a record breaking 7 Olivier Awards 2013 - including Best Play.
