We’ve teamed up with Salon London for a chance to dig deeper into Marianne Elliot’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens. Salons invite the country’s most passionate speakers from across the arts, science and psychology and offer a sneak peak in to their worlds.
15yr-old Christopher, the protagonist of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, has an extraordinary brain: exceptional at maths, fascinated by the workings of the universe, while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. The first two of our speakers get inside the mathematics and the cosmology that make Christopher tick:
Marcus Chown, known to many as the Cosmology Editor for the New Scientist, will be explaining the secrets of life, the universe and everything and for one brilliant transcendent moment you will understand the quantum world.
David Speigelhalter OBE is Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk and just loves numbers - he will show how you can work out the risks you take with everything you do, from crossing the road to eating a burger.
Marcus and David will be joined by Curious Incident Staff Director Katy Rudd who will be explaining the NT’s production from the inside out.
Suitable for 18yrs+
