A thrilling mystery centered around a young man and a dead dog hits the Newtown Theatre stage from October 19th through October 22nd in Newtown Arts Company's production of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME.

This play by Simon Stephens, based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, begins when 15-year-old Christopher Boone is discovered standing over the dead dog of his neighbor, murdered with a pitchfork.

But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
