The National Theatre’s multi award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will begin a 31 city tour of the UK and Ireland in December.
It’s the largest tour ever undertaken by the NT and reflects the interest in this incredibly popular drama.
The show will open at the Lowry, Salford and then tour to Hull, York, Newcastle, Stoke-on-Trent, Wolverhampton, Plymouth, Aylesbury, Northampton, Nottingham, Cardiff, Bradford, Edinburgh, Canterbury, Birmingham, Leicester, Southampton, Truro, Oxford, Liverpool, Bristol, Sunderland, Glasgow, Leeds, Aberdeen, Norwich, Sheffield, Dublin, Belfast, Bath and finally Milton Keynes Theatre in November 2015.
Meanwhile, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will resume its West End run at the Gielgud Theatre on June 24 and it will also open on Broadway on September 15.
Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, received seven Olivier Awards last year, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design.
It also won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Theatre and has been seen by over 200,000 people during its run in the West End.
Its title quotes the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes in Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1892 short story Silver Blaze.
The stage play, adapted from the novel, tells the story of a remarkable Swindon teenager and his sleuthing adventures.
