The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time returns to Leeds Grand Theatre
30th March 2022
Back by popular demand, the Olivier and Tony Award®-winning production of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will visit Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 12 to Saturday 16 April 2022. This UK and Ireland tour marks 10 years of the production which originated at the National Theatre.
Since 2012, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been seen by more than five million people worldwide, including two UK tours, two West End runs, a Broadway transfer, a specially adapted schools tour which has visited more than 100 schools around the UK and was seen by over 12,000 young people, a National Theatre Live cinema broadcast, and tours to the Netherlands, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Australia and 30 cities across the USA.
Curious Incident is adapted by Simon Stephens (Carmen Disruption, Sea Wall) from the novel by Mark Haddon, and directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, Angels in America, Company).
The play tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher John Francis Boone. He stands besides Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who killed Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road; he detests being touched and 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 at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 12 to Saturday 16 April 2022.
