The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tickets

London Play
Final chance to see the multi-award-winning National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
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, exceptional at maths while illequipped 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. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott and was acclaimed by critics and audiences alike during its sell-out run at the National's Cottesloe Theatre. ★★★★★ ‘A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life’ Evening Standard ★★★★★ 'Magical and Moving' Daily Mail

    Well acted piece of theatre that didn't quite invoke the world I remembered from the book

  • Review Avatar Jun 13, 2015

    I have seen this play twice now and still think it is one of the best productions I have ever seen. The cast are dedicated and thoroughly committed to producing the highest quality performances. Graham Butler is incredible on every level providing a master class in acting. Everyone should this play. It is breathtakingly fabulous.

    Brilliant production and amazing acting which gives the audience an insight to the thought process of an autistic teenager. A must see.

    Brilliantly acted and stunning set design. One of my daughters favourite books and she loved the play. We're already planning to see it again when it comes to Bristol this summer.

    An incredible production, the music was powerful in portraying the feelings and sensual experience of Christopher. I thought the way that movement of the actors was such a central theme was also very powerful and original. Will be recommending to everyone I know!!

    Fantastic play, wonderful use of stage props and choreography to deliver an engaging performance that successfully informs the audience of how it is like inside the mind of Christopher.

    This was excellent. There is nothing negative to say about it. My partner and I thought it was the best play we've ever seen! The staging was brilliant, the acting was superb and we had great seats in Row F.

    The title and thought of a dead dog put me off going to this show until a friend recommended it. It turned out to hold my attention from start to finish. I laughed out loud at the beautiful humour, cried, leant forward in my seat, gasped and learnt more than I expected to learn from a beautifully acted and hugely cleverly presented show. Hats off to all involved and sincere thanks for a super experience. Thoroughly recommended : )

    Loved the show. The lead actor did a fantastic job and overall it was a riveting theater experience.

  • Review Avatar Jul 11, 2015

    It was easy to buy a ticket and pick it up at the theatre all very straight forward. The play was excellent and very well executed. It was funny, sad, exiting and very clever! I enjoyed it very much.
