The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

based on the novel by Mark Haddon
adapted by Simon Stephens​
directed by Ben Raanan

Christopher Boone, an inquisitive fifteen-year-old with an exceptional mind, launches an investigation after finding that his neighbor’s dog, Wellington, has been killed. Christopher goes on a journey of self-discovery as he travels alone for the first time and learns about the true nature of his mother’s whereabouts. Winner of Olivier and Tony Awards, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time explores the complexity and challenges of Christopher’s daily life. 
What if the world isn’t just black and white…but sometimes grey?
