Based on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time  by Mark Haddon

Mark Haddon's best-selling novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens. The production at the National Theatre is directed by Marianne Elliot and stars Luke Treadaway as Christopher Boone - a 15 year old ''mathematician with behavioural difficulties'' (his own description). When Christopher tries to find out who killed a neighbour's dog he unearths more about his own life than he anticipated.
