After achieving worldwide success, the National Theatre’s critically-acclaimed, multi-award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to the West End. Adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel of the same name, the show plays a strictly limited season at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Originally premiering at the National Theatre in 2012, the show went on to transfer to the West End’s Apollo Theatre, before it later moved to the Gielgud Theatre. Earning seven Olivier Awards on the way, it later transferred to Broadway, where it swiped an impressive five Tony Awards.

Curious Incident follows fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone, a young math genius who struggles to understand people and the world around him. But when he discovers Mrs Shears dog Wellington murdered with a pitchfork, and he becomes a suspect, Christopher vows to solve the mystery and catch the killer.

But his investigations leave him under suspicion by the local constabulary, and Christopher is forced to go on a tremendous journey to reach a conclusion. As his journey of discovery takes him all the way to London, Christopher faces a world of terrifying new experiences that change his live forever.

Directed by Marianne Elliot (War Horse, Company), the production features a stellar creative team, with design by Bunny Christie, lighting by Paule Constable, sound design by Ian Dickinson for Autograph, video design by Finn Ross and music by Adrian Sutton, with movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly.

Joshua Jenkins, star of the recent UK and international tour, makes his West End debut in the role of Christopher. Alongside him onstage are Julie Hale (Cured) as Siobhan, Sean McKenzie (Two) as Reverend Peters, Emma Beattie (The Last of the Haussmans) as Judy, Stuart Laing (Peckham: The Soap Opera) as Ed, Eliza Collings (The Other Place) as Mrs Shears, Lucas Hare (The Last Of The Haussmans) as Mr Shears, Craig Stein (Fatherland) as Mr Thompson, Lynette Clarke (Karagula) as Mrs Alexander and Gemma Knight Jones (The Lion King) as Punk Girl. At some performances, Sam Newton will take over the part of Christopher. The understudies are Rose Riley, Emma-Jane Goodwin, Joe Rising and Kieran Garland.

An unmissable theatrical event that still remains incredibly pertinent today, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is an immersive story with stunning technology. The production runs from 29 November 2018, with a press night on 11 December 2018.
