Based on the novel by Mark Haddon
Adapted by Simon Stephens

The National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award® -winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to Newcastle for one week only.
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.

The full cast joining the production is Marc Benga (ensemble), David Breeds (Christopher), Jacob Coleman (understudy Christopher and swing), Connor Curren (Christopher), Kofi De-Graft-Jordan (Mr Thompson), Ashley Gerlach (Mr Shears), Joanne Henry (Mrs Alexander), Siu-See Hung (Punk Girl), Sophie Stone (Judy), Sibylla Meienberg (ensemble), David Monteith (Reverend Peters), Tom Peters (Ed), Joe Rawlinson-Hunt (ensemble), Rebecca Root (Siobhan), Hannah Sinclair Robinson (Mrs Shears), and Rebecca Wilson (ensemble).

This production contains some moments of sensory intensity, reflecting the content of the novel and autistic experience. Click here to find out more about the trigger warnings for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
