The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is an award-winning theatre production.


Since it’s West End debut last year, it has already featured in three London venues. First at the Apollo, where it brought the house down in a way nobody wanted, when the ceiling fell in! Then it transferred to the National Theatre and now its the Gielgud Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue, where it will be performed throughout the summer of 2014. Jim’s K-Rated review here was filmed when it was showing at the Apollo.


It tells the hilarious, heart-warming story of Christopher, ‘a mathematician with some behavioural difficulties’. Haddon himself has described it as a story ‘about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way’. Experience Christopher’s unusual world, as its turned upside down, with a finale you could never have guessed, unless you’ve read the book of course!


KidRated’s Top Tip: The plot has adult themes so teengagers will love it but it may not be suitable for young children.
