National Theatre Live: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Description: Mark Haddon's celebrated, multi-award-winning novel is beautifully and imaginatively adapted into a stage play for the first time. Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog, Wellington. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in his book to solve the mystery. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
