Details

“…Grabs the audience’s attention in the first few minutes and never lets go. Humorous and achingly sad…Brilliant in scope, this curiously different story allows us to get inside the beautiful mind of a boy who teaches us that impossible obstacles can turn into limitless possibilities. Hands down, this is a show that is as extraordinary as its hero.” – Marcia Morphy, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

About the Show

Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is finally coming to Dallas! Hailed as “one of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, this dazzling adaptation is the Tony Award-winning new play by Simon Stephens, adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel and directed by Tony winner Marianne Elliott.

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.
