After five incredibly successful years at the Gielgud Theatre, London, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is coming to Birmingham Hippodrome in just a few weeks time.
Currently in the midst of its UK tour which kicked off at The Lowry, Salford in January, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will land at the Hippodrome on Tuesday July 4 where it will run until Saturday July 8.
Hailed by critics across the country, seven times Olivier Award-winning production is a modern adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best-selling book by Simon Stephens which was originally published in 2003. The performance tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone (Scott Reid), who has an extraordinary brain; and is exceptional at maths whilst ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
After his neighbour’s dog Wellington is murdered, Christopher sets out to solve the mystery of who killed the beloved pet. And despite having never ventured alone beyond the end of his road before, Christopher’s detective work, which is forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is also launching the Hippodrome’s new season of Accessible Performances with the first Relaxed Performance taking place on Monday July 3.
The performance aims to give families, and adults with access needs, the opportunity to experience the award-winning production which contains some challenging content, as well as reflecting the slightly older age guidance (11+) for this production.
