THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME Celebrates Pi Day Today

The critically acclaimed new play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will celebrate Pi Day today, March 14 with a special lottery at the theater before both the 2pm matinee and 8pm evening performances, 2 hours before each curtain. Twenty tickets will be available at each performance for a special price of $3.14. Dub Pies will be distributing sweet and savory pies outside of the theater for fans throughout the day, and there will be additional giveaways including Curious Incident Pi pins (see illustration, left). #CuriousIncident

Written by Simon Stephens, adapted from Mark Haddon's best-selling novel, and directed by Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliott, the play began preview performances on September 20, 2014 and opened to rave reviews on October 5, 2014. The production plays at the Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street).

The National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time stars Juilliard graduate Alex Sharp in his Broadway debut as Christopher, Ian Barford (August: Osage County) as Ed, Helen Carey (London Assurance, Tony nomination and Theatre World Award) as Mrs. Alexander, Francesca Faridany (The 39 Steps) as Siobhan and Enid Graham (The Constant Wife) as Judy. The ensemble includes Jocelyn Bioh (An Octoroon at Soho Rep), Keren Dukes ("Nurse Jackie"), Stephanie Roth Haberle (Artist Descending a Staircase), Mercedes Herrero (The Laramie Project and its sequel), Richard Hollis (Hit-Lit at Queens Theatre), Ben Horner (War Horse), David Manis (War Horse), Tom Patrick Stephens (The New York Idea) and Timothy Wright (The Bridges of Madison County). Taylor Trensch (Matilda the Musical) will play Christopher at certain performances.

THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME transferred to London's West End, following a sold-out run at the National's Cottesloe Theatre in 2012. The production received seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best New Play and continues to play to sold-out houses at the Gielgud Theatre in London.

Fifteen-year old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

The production is designed by three-time Olivier Award-winner Bunny Christie, with lighting by Tony Award-winner Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross, choreography by Scott Graham and Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly, music by Adrian Sutton, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph and hair and wig design by David Brian Brown. Casting is by Daniel Swee and Cindy Tolan.

Mark Haddon's novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was published in 2003. It was the winner of more than 17 literary awards, including prizes in the US, Japan, Holland and Italy as well as the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in the UK in 2004, and has been translated into 44 languages.
