Why See The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time?
The Smash Hit Returns!
"My name is Christopher John Francis Boone. I know all the countries of the world and the capital cities. And every prime number up to 7507."
After an international tour which has seen the production play in Singapore, Melbourne and Toronto the seven-time Olivier and five-time Tony-winning smash hit returns to London's West End for a limited time this Winter! Wowing audiences since 2013 the hit play is based on the award-winning book by Mark Haddon, telling the story of 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.
This cleverly staged production has been hailed for its beautiful portrayal of life lived by children like Christopher and their unique perspective on the world. It will make you think, laugh and, most of all, look at the world around you in a whole new way.
What is Curious Incident about?
Young Christopher Boone lives in a world where ordinary social interactions can be overwhelming but complex mathematics and patterns naturally jump out at him - a combination which is very well suited to being a solitary detective. His father has banned him from undertaking anymore cases, however when he comes across an unmissable mystery at exactly seven minutes past midnight Christopher is unable to resist solving the crime.

Mark Haddon won over 17 international literary awards for his 2003 novel!
