The National Theatre’s multi award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is set to return to Newcastle Theatre Royal due to popular demand (30 May 10 June 2017).
Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, received seven Olivier Awards in 2013. The show’s first phenomenally successful tour was seen by almost 400,000 people nationwide and is currently being rolled out to US shores.
The show tells the story of fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone. He stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork; it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. Christopher records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. His detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
National Theatre producer, Kash Bennett, said: “We are delighted to be taking this beautiful and inventive show to new venues and making return visits to others.”
