A local treat

After the untimely death of his neighbour's dog, 15-year-old Christopher is on a mission to find out who carried out the crime in his own unique and brilliant way. See the world through Christopher's eyes as he embarks on his quest, where revealing the dog's killer isn't the only hard truth he discovers...

Based on the book by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time received critical acclaim in both London and New York winning seven Olivier Awards in 2013 and five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Play. It was heralded as a phenomenon for the arts and ushered in a brand new combination of story-telling and spectacle. Currently on international tour in Australia, witness the magic of this play in your very own Philly!

What is The Curious Incident of the Dog of the Night-Time about?

When 15-year old Christopher finds himself at the scene of a crime, namely the murder of his neighbour's dog Wellington in his owner's garden (at seven minutes past midnight), he finds himself a suspect due to his Asperger's condition. So he embarks on an extraordinary journey across the country that pits this amateur detective against the murder mystery culprit, and forcing him into conflict with his family, his dreams and his ambitions, with a triumphalist spirit that will uplift and keep you thinking long after you've left the theater.
