Adapted by Simon Stephens from the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will again be directed by Marianne Elliott.

Fifteen year old Christopher stands 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.

Reprising their roles in the West End will be Luke Treadaway as Christopher (on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), Matthew Barker, Niamh Cusack, Sophie Duval, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, Nick Sidi and Howard Ward.

Further casting has yet to be announced.

Public booking for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time opens on November 23, 2012, following priority booking for National Theatre members. For every performance, there will be 150 tickets available at just £12 per ticket.
