As part of the third UK and Ireland tour of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the critically-acclaimed National Theatre production will head to Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre. The multi-Olivier Award-winning play will run for a limited engagement.
Based on Mark Haddon's 2003 book of the same name, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time centres on Christopher Boone, a teenager who discovers his neighbour's dog has died and sets out to investigate the case. However, his detective work leads Christopher to find a wealth of information about his family.
Adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliot, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time received its premiere at the National Theatre in 2012, transferring to the Apollo Theatre the following year, where it won seven Olivier Awards including best new play. In a five-star review in 2014, Mark Shenton said "Curious Incident, based on Mark Haddon's novel of the same name, remains easily the best contemporary drama in London", hailing it as "unmissable theatre - a modern classic."
Since then, it's returned to the West End for a limited engagement at the Piccadilly Theatre and has enjoyed a Broadway transfer as well as international tours across Europe, Asia and the USA.
Casting for the UK tour of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is to be announced.
