Curious Incident tour heads to Royal & Derngate

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME UK Tour 2014/2015

Smash-hit National Theatre production The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time comes to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate from May 24-28 as part of a major tour of the UK and Ireland.

Winner of seven Olivier Awards including Best New Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was adapted by Simon Stephens from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel.

Curious tells the story of Christopher Boone, who is fifteen years old. He stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, Wellington, 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 murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, and is exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

The cast also includes Geraldine Alexander as his teacher Siobhan, Roberta Kerr as Mrs Alexander, Stuart Laing as his father Ed, Gina Isaacs as Judy and Clare Perkins as Mrs Shears.
