National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is coming to Liverpool!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has appeared on the West End and Broadway and is the winner of seven Olivier Awards including Best New Play. The show was adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, and is directed by Marianne Elliott, who co-directed the National Theatre’s record-breaking production of War Horse, which last year won The Manchester Theatre Award for Best Visiting Production.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time tells the story of Christopher Boone, who is fifteen years old. He stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork. It is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, and is 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. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
