Winner of the Olivier Award and Tony Award® for Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings Mark Haddon’s international best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage in a dazzling adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, Company).

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at maths, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.

A beautiful and dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.
- Evening Standard

Hailed as ‘extraordinary,’ ‘dazzling’ and ‘unmissable’ by Time Magazine, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a theatrical phenomenon simply not to be missed.

Please note: This production contains strobe lighting, smoke effects, high intensity video & light effects, and loud sound effects. Suitable for 11+. There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show. We can provide a copy of the full script should you wish to have more information.

Originally The New Theatre, it opened on Boxing Day, 1912. It went through several iterations, being renamed once before becoming the Opera House in 1920. It's also been used for different functions; as a cinema in WW2, then a bingo hall before reopening as a theatre again in 1984. Since, it has hosted magnificent shows like Barnum and Phantom of the Opera.
