NT LIVE: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Tickets Still Available Today at the Box Office

Rebroadcast at 7pm - Tickets are still available today via phone till 4pm and will be available at the box office window beginning at 6:00pm.

Mark Haddon’s celebrated, multi-award-winning novel is beautifully and imaginatively adapted into a stage play for the first time.

Part of National Theatre Live – the best of British theatre broadcast live to cinemas worldwide.

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.

Christopher is played by Luke Treadaway, whose past roles include "Albert" in the original production of WAR HORSE.

Mark Haddon’s novel was Whitbread Book of the Year in 2003, and has now sold over 2 million copies around the world. Marianne Elliott co-directed the globally successful stage production of War Horse for the National, for which she won a Tony Award in 2011. Simon Stephens, twice Best Foreign Playwright of the Year, is the author of many original plays and adaptations, including Harper Regan and On the Shore of the Wide World, both directed by Marianne Elliott at the National Theatre.

The National Theatre's current sold-out hit, this show is the hottest ticket in London. Tickets are no longer available for remaining performances, so even those in London can only view via NT Live.

“Riveting, emotional, intensely theatrical re-imagining of Mark Haddon's multi-prizewinning bestseller "The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time" is nothing short of a triumph.” – Variety
