Winner of five Tony Awards (including Best Play) and seven Olivier Awards (including Best New Play), the National Theatre production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” returns to cinemas for this very special encore.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’.

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside 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 the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Critics are raving about “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”, which garnered highest 4-star reviews from every major newspaper and magazine in London.
