About The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The National Theatre's Olivier and Tony Award® -winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to London this November for seven weeks only at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.

Director Marianne Elliott's ‘extraordinary and unmissable’ (Time) smash hit production brings Mark Haddon's best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.

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.

Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre is located in one of London's most exciting sport and entertainment destinations, in the heart of Wembley Park.

Suitable for ages 11+, no under 5's will be admitted Running time: 2hrs 30min (including interval)

Please note
There is some strong language in the production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show.

Tell Me More

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is in London, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time tickets are on sale.

In what the Evening Standard calls a “beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show”, audiences meet 15-year-old Christopher Boone. Often keeping himself shut away from the world, he doesn’t know what to do when he’s considered the prime murder suspect after discovering a dead body. 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. But the more he investigates, the more he learns about his father and family.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel. Exploring themes of trust and bravery, there’s no limit to what Christopher Boone can accomplish. After Olivier Award-winning West End runs, the National Theatre play tours once more, stopping off at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.

What to watch for

  • It takes a special ear to listen out for this, but all the original music for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time play is based on prime number sequences. The piece of music that opens the show counts out a 2-3-5-7 rhythm. See if you can hear it when you watch the show.
  • Three pieces of chalk are used during every performance, but what if they break? Don’t worry, there’s two pieces always on standby.
  • The iconic grid lighting design is by Paule Constable. To achieve the straight lines on stage, a computer is used to make sure they’re accurate and evenly spaced for each location.
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in London was an Olivier Award-winning smash hit. The play won seven Olivier Awards in 2013 including Best Play and Best Director.
  • Marianne Elliott directs The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. She’s also directed National Theatre plays including War Horse and the recent revival of Angels in America.
