ABOUT THE SHOW

Christopher, 15 years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs. Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Trivia

  • In 2013 The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time won seven Olivier Awards in London, including Best New Play, tying the record set by Matilda The Musical the previous year.
  • The title is a quotation from Sherlock Holmes in Arthur Conan Doyle's 1892 short story "Silver Blaze".

    History

    Before Broadway, the play transferred to London’s West End following a sold-out run at the National’s Cottesloe Theatre in 2012. The original novel by Mark Haddon was published in 2003.
