The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time



WINNER OF FIVE TONY AWARDS AND 7 OLIVIER AWARDS INCLUDING BEST PLAY. Christopher Boone is exceptionally intelligent, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to investigate the bizarre death of a neighbor’s dog, inspiring a series of events that expose far greater mysteries. As the clues fall into place, they reveal a community of disparate characters, a family with secrets, and a gifted mind in a complicated relationship with the world. This international hit takes you inside the extraordinary mind of a boy who views the world as most of us can only imagine.
