Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone 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 Christopher on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
Direct from the UK, this acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is the winner of five Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play for both. Adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s international best-selling novel, this phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle is ingeniously brought to life by award-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse).
Featuring remarkable, immersive staging and a full UK cast, this Australian premiere presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and MTC is a global theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
Stay in the theatre after each dedicated schools matinee for a student Q&A with the Resident Director and actor playing ‘Christopher'.
