The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time extends W/E run - again

Theatre news

THE NATIONAL Theatre’s Olivier Award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has again extended its booking period at the Apollo Theatre; this time until October 25, 2014.

First seen in the National’s Cottesloe Theatre in 2012, the production transferred to the Apollo Theatre in March 2013.

Adapted by Simon Stephens from the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time finds fifteen year old Christopher standing beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It 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, 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 he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The cast includes Luke Treadaway, (as Christopher), Niamh Cusack (Christopher’s teacher, Siobhan), Holly Aird (Judy), Matthew Barker (Ensemble), Sophie Duval (Mrs Shears), Seán Gleeson (Ed), Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty (Ensemble), Nick Sidi (Roger), Tilly Tremayne (Mrs Alexander), Howard Ward (Ensemble) and Johnny Gibbon as the alternate Christopher.

Marianne Elliott directs.

A Relaxed Performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will take place on June 22, 2013 at 2.30pm.
