Based on the novel by Mark Haddon, Simon Stephens' The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time follows Christopher (Langdon)—a fifteen-year-old who is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
The play premiered at the U.K.’s National Theatre in 2012 and went on to transfer to the West End and win seven 2013 Olivier Awards. Curious Incident took home five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Play and Best Direction of a Play for Marianne Elliott.
