About The Curious Incident...

Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards and five 2015 Tony Awards®, including Best Play, this thrilling production has been seen by over three million people worldwide and has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle.’

Christopher, fifteen years old, 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 the 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 show has been seen in 9 countries and 78 cities world-wide, most recently completing an acclaimed international tour to cities including Amsterdam, Toronto, Hong Kong, Singapore and Melbourne.

Mark Haddon’s novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was published in 2003 and was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in the US, Japan, Holland and Italy, as well as the prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004.

More information about The Curious Incident...

“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” returns to London for a limited run at the Piccadilly Theatre. Based on Mark Haddon’s beloved novel, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning play is directed by Marianne Elliott (“War Horse,” “Angels in America,” “Company”).

In this “beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show” (Evening Standard), 15-year-old Christopher Boon discovers the dead body of his neighbour’s dog and sets out to discover who murdered him. When given a task at school to write a story, Christopher decides to record his investigations in a book, which is both aided and hampered by his struggles on the autism spectrum. However, as he uncovers further layers of the investigation, he discovers a more complicated plot relating to his father and a secret romantic affair. As Christopher’s family relations break down, the play beautifully explores themes of trust and what can be accomplished when you brave the unknown.

Recommended for children 11+. Children under 5 years and babes in arms will not be admitted.

What to watch for

All the music in the show is based on prime number sequences. The piece of music that opens the show counts out a 2-3-5-7 rhythm.

Three pieces of chalk are used at every performance, with two pieces always on standby.

The name of the play comes from a line in the Sherlock Holmes book, “Silver Blaze.”

The iconic grid lighting and lines on the set are made using a computer in order to make sure they are accurate and straight.

The show was nominated for six Tony Awards in 2015, winning five including Best Play.
