THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME Returns to the West End, Now Through Feb 14, 2015

The National Theatre's multi-award winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has returned to the West End with a new company at the Gielgud Theatre. Press night is on 8 July, with the production currently booking at its new West End home to 14 February 2015.

Simon Stephens' adaption of Mark Haddon's novel is directed for the stage by Marianne Elliott.

The cast comprises Graham Butler as Christopher, he is joined by Vivienne Acheampong (No. 40/Punk Girl), Daniel Casey (Roger Shears), Emily Joyce (Judy), Abram Rooney (Alternate Christopher), Gay Soper (Mrs Alexander), Paul Stocker (Mr Thompson), Nicolas Tennant (Ed), Tony Turner (Reverend Peters), Victoria Willing (Mrs Shears), Sarah Woodward (Siobhan) and Sam Bond, Penelope McGhie, Roxanne Palmer and Mark Rawlings.

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands besides Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, and is 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 distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

The production is designed by Bunny Christie, with lighting by Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross, movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton and sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph.
