On Tour: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

“A beautiful, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.”
Evening Standard

The National Theatre's Olivier and Tony Award® -winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns with a new 10th Anniversary UK and Ireland tour, beginning in London this November.

Director Marianne Elliott's ‘life-affirming 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.

Casting to be announced

Suitable for 11yrs+. There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show.

Please note: This production contains strobe lighting, smoke effects, high intensity video & light effects, and loud sound effects.
