The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is still wowing the crowds since moving to its new home at the Gielgud Theatre in June 2014. This critically acclaimed play is based on the award-winning book by Mark Haddon about a 15-year-old maths genius with Asperger's Syndrome, and the amazing journey he sets out on in order to solve the mysterious death of his neighbour's dog.

Located on Shaftesbury Avenue, The Gielgud Theatre is a West End theatre which was designed by W.G.R Sprague and first opened in 1906 as the Hicks Theatre, after Seymour Hicks. In 1909, Charles Frohman took over the management of the theatre and it was named the Globe Theatre for 85 years. In 1994 it was renamed the Gielgud Theatre in honour of John Gielgud, as the Shakespeare's Globe was being constructed on the South Bank. Since 2006, Delfont Mackintosh Theatre have operated the Gielgud.
