The National Theatre’s award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is playing at the The Regent Theatre this week. Winner of 7 Olivier Awards including ‘Best New Play’, brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage, adapted by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott.
The production is hugely enjoyable with jaw dropping moments. The writing, acting, design and movement fantastic. The tale begins with a dog stabbed by a garden fork and develops as Christopher, a fifteen year old who must get to the bottom of what has happened. However, he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog and he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.
Highly recommended with great acting from all and the 1400 who were present on opening night gave the company a well deserved standing ovation.
