Based on Mark Haddon’s phenomenally successful novel, Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s best seller has been offering theatregoers a theatrically magic spin on the story of 15-year-old Christopher and the events that unfold after he discovers his neighbour’s dog has been murdered since it premiered to wide acclaim at the National Theatre in 2012.

Directed by Marianne Elliott, the seminal production offers an incredible insight into the autistic protagonist’s complicated and spectacular mind using Es Devlin’s striking, interactive set and movement by acclaimed physical theatre makers Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett.

While the show is no doubt gunning for a win at this year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard, it’s already an Olivier Award record breaker after it picked up seven prizes at the 2013 ceremony, becoming the most successful play in the history of the awards.

Exhilarating, seriously entertaining and possibly unlike anything else you will have seen in the West End, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is an Olivier Award record-breaker for good reason, as its current stars Rebecca Lacey and Siôn Daniel Young explained to us in the video above.

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time is booking at the Gielgud Theatre to 29 October. You can book tickets through us here.
