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

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog.

It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington.

He 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.
