Directed by Casey Merkey, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
by Simon Stephens based on the novel by Mark Haddon, is the fourth show of our 56th season. It follows fifteen-year-old Christopher, who has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.

Our production opens February 8, 2019 and runs three weekends. Purchase tickets online. Suggested for audiences ages 13 and older due to themes, some strong language.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time originally premiered on the West End in London, where is won seven Olivier Awards, including Best New Play. It opened on Broadway in 2014, where it ran for two years and received the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the Tony Award for Best Play.
