The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Named as Time Magazine's top theatrical experience of the year for 2014

Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards, this highly acclaimed National Theatre production, arrives at The Lowry as part of its first ever UK tour.

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, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world…

Based on the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a thrilling new stage play from the National Theatre.

Please note that loud sound effects, high intensity lighting and video effects (including strobe lighting) feature in this production.
