The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - ePublication
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award® for Best Play.
THE STORY: It is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: he is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
SPECIAL NOTE There is also a 90-minute abridged version of the play which may be performed. It is only available as a manuscript. Please call customer service at 212-540-9330 to order.
Also winner of the 2013 Olivier Award for Best New Play.
