The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 

10th Anniversary Tour  

The National Theatre’s global smash-hit production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is embarking on a 10th Anniversary Tour and returns to Edinburgh from 22 to 26 February 2022. 

Winner of the Olivier Award and Tony Award® for Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time brings Mark Haddon’s international best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage in a dazzling adaptation by two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens and directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse, Company). 

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths, while 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. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world. 

Hailed as ‘extraordinary,’ ‘dazzling’ and ‘unmissable’ by Time Magazine, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a theatrical experience not to be missed. 

This production contains strobe lighting, smoke effects, high-intensity video & light effects, and loud sound effects.
