The National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book, is set to return to Bath following its sell-out 2015 visit. Appearing at the Theatre Royal for a run of sixteen performances.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the recipient of a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design – more Oliviers than any other single play in the history of the West End. When it transferred to Broadway, this production ran at the Barrymore Theatre in New York from September 2014 until September 2016, winning five prestigious Tony Awards including Best Play and becoming the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade.
The show tells the story of fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain - exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road; he detests being touched and distrusts strangers. When Christopher falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears’ dog, which has been speared with a garden fork, he tries to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, recording each fact in a book. But his detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
