The National Theatre's extraordinary production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time continues to play in London's West End at the Gielgud Theatre. Having originally opened at the Cottesloe Theatre (now known at the Dorfman Theatre) on the South Bank, the production transferred to the West End, where it went on to win seven Olivier Awards, including the award for Best New Play. Based on Mark Haddon's original book and adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens, it is directed by Marianne Elliott with innovative stage design by Bunny Christie, lighting by Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross and movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly.

Having become one of the West End's most popular plays, the production transferred to Broadway where it opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on 5 October 2014. It went on to win the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play.

The play has since been seen around the world in productions in Mexico, Seoul and Canada as well as a 32 date UK tour. A second UK and Ireland tour is set to begin in 2017.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Synopsis: 

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing in an attempt to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.

Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, detests being touched and distrusts strangers. But now his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that turns his whole world upside down.
