Fifteen-year-old Christopher John Francis Boone stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog Wellington, which has been speared with a garden fork. It is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He is trying to solve the mystery of who killed Wellington and is recording all the facts in a book he is writing. 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 does not trust strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time has been seen by more than five people across the world. It won seven Olivier Awards including Best New Play, it won five Tony Awards including Best Play, six Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Play, five Outer Critics Circle Awards and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play.
Based on Mark Haddon’s novel of the same name published in 2003, the book won more than 17 literary awards including the prestigious Whitbread Book Of The Year in the UK in 2004.
