The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

A play by Simon Stephens
Based on the novel by Mark Haddon
Latrelle Bright, director

Based on Mark Haddon’s prizewinning 2003 novel, the play presents a young man’s search for answers—to his favorite math problems, about what it means to be different, to the question of who murdered the neighbor’s dog. A play-within-a-play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time explores the bonds between parent and child, and what it means to accept shortcomings in those we love.

This production contains the graphic depiction of an animal’s death which may not be suitable for all viewers. The play is based on Mark Haddon's Young Adult novel and is most appropriate for audiences 14 and up.

There will be a post-performance Talkback on Thursday, March 7.

A sensory-friendly performance of this production will be presented on Saturday, March 9, at 1pm with some elements adjusted for those on the autism spectrum and others for whom these adjustments are useful.
