PREVIEW: The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time @ Newcastle Theatre Royal

Posted on May 22nd 2017 by Whats on Northeast

Since Mark Haddon wrote the novel, ‘The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time’ has become an international, award-winning phenomenon, becoming beloved the world over by both adults and children.

Now the novel has been adapted for the stage once again by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliot, who has previously co-directed the National Theatre’s record-breaking production of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse,’ coming to Newcastle Theatre Royal from 30th May for a week-and-a-half-long run as part of its national tour.

The story follows Christopher, a fifteen-year-old with an extraordinary brain. He’s exceptional at maths, but he’s ill-equipped to deal with and interpret everyday life. He’s barely even ventured beyond the end of the road alone and hates being touched by strangers. But when he’s suspected of killing his neighbour’s dog, he embarks on a journey that will change his life forever.

On its first stage run, the production was seen by almost 400,000 people nationwide, winning a whopping seven Olivier Awards in 2013 including Best New Play, Best Director and Best Design, and across the pond won five Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Kash Bennet, National Theatre producer, said: “We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic reception from audiences around the UK and Ireland when we toured The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in 2014-15, and are delighted to take this beautiful and inventive show to new venues and make a return visits to others next year.”

This new run is set to be even bigger, even more spectacular and yes, even more heart-rending than the last!

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time comes to Newcastle Theatre Royal between Tuesday 30th May and Saturday 10th June. Tickets are priced from £14.50. To find out more, visit the Theatre Royal website.
