The Key Theatre’s new season of Stage on Screen now brings us the chance to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time without having to leave the city!
The Key is screening a great series of performances – many of them live – and this encore screening from the National Theatre is on Thursday May 22.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’. Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play.
Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears’ dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The original cast, as seen in this encore screening, featured Luke Treadaway as Christopher, Una Stubbs, Nicola Walker, Paul Ritter and Niamh Cusack.
