(ENCORE) Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens

Following its smash-hit live broadcast in 2012, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to cinemas. 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.” It is the winner of seven Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play. Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain—exceptional at math, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs. Shears’s 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.
