The 10th anniversary tour of massively popular and successful drama The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time opens with a seven-week London run from November 20 before visiting venues including Sheffield's Lyceum (February 15-19), Manchester Opera House (March 8-12), Liverpool Empire (March 22-26) and Leeds Grand (April 12-16).
The Olivier and Tony Award-winning National Theatre production was originally adapted by Stockport writer Simon Stephens from the novel by Mark Haddon, and directed by former Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre director Marianne Elliott.
Sharing the lead role of Christopher are David Breeds – most recently in the West End premiere of Dear Evan Hansen – and Connor Curren, making his professional stage debut.
For those who haven't yet seen the drama, Christopher (15) is exceptional at maths, but everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, detests being touched and distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, events take him on a journey that turns his world around...
Curious Incident has been seen by more than five million people worldwide since it opened in 2012, and was the winner of seven Olivier awards. Following its New York premiere in September 2014, it became the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade and picked up five Tony awards.
Mark Haddon’s novel was published in 2003 and has won more than 17 literary awards, including the prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year prize. The novel has been translated into 44 languages and has sold more than 5.5 million copies all over the world.
