BWW Feature: THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME at SOME THEATRE COMPANY, ORONO

Some Theatre Company, based in Orono, are pulling out all the stops with their upcoming 2018/2019 season show reveals.

The first play you will see in 2019 is the Tony Award winning, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a play by Simon Stephens based on the novel of the same name by Mark Haddon.

The play, set in Swindon and London, is about a 15-year-old amateur detective named Christopher John Francis Boone who is a mathematical genius. He appears to have an unspecified autism spectrum disorder that is variously described as either autism or Asperger's Syndrome, although the condition is never explicitly stated in the play. The titular curious incident is the mystery surrounding the death of a neighbour's dog, Wellington, found speared by a garden fork.

During its premiere run, the play tied the record for winning the most Olivier Awards (seven), including Best New Play at the 2013 ceremony

It won the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play.

With a cast of 10, this piece of theatre is known for its stunning visual effects, and physicality.

Mark your calendars, Some Theatre Company will be holding auditions for this production:

Nov 18 - 1pm to 6pm

Nov 19 - 6pm to 9pm
