NT Live: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (12A)
6th September 2012
Luke Treadaway, Nicola Walker, Niamh Cusack, Una Stubbs, Nick Sidi
A brilliantly imaginative stage adaptation of Mark Haddon's bestseller, from the co-director of 'War Horse'. Fifteen-year-old Christopher (Luke Treadaway) has a brain that's exceptional at mathematics but rather less good at interpreting everyday life. Confronted by the corpse of his neighbour's dog, he embarks on a meticulous investigation into how the beast came to be slaughtered. But along the way, his entire world is turned upside down. A murder-mystery like no other, with a detective unparalleled in modern fiction, Mark Haddon's 2003 novel 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' was a huge commercial and critical success. The winner of the 2003 Whitbread Book of the Year, it has sold more than two million copies worldwide. Now Haddon's hilarious and affecting first novel reaches the stage for the first time. Adapted by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens, this National Theatre production is directed by Marianne Elliott - Tony Award-winning co-director of the National's stunning 'War Horse'.
