Curious Incident London Theatre Break

Shares

See the best of the city on one of our London Theatre Breaks. See the London Eye, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe, the British Museum and lots more.

The National Theatre's award-winning The Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night-time is playing at the Gielgud Theatre until 3 June 2017.

Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards and five 2015 Tony Awards®, including Best Play, this thrilling production has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’.

Christopher, 15 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 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.

Adapted by playwright Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon's award-winning 2003 novel, The Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night-time was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in Japan, Holland and Italy as well as the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004.
