Win tickets to see The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time
PUBLISHED: 08:00 22 May 2017
The National Theatre's award-winning production of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will return to The Bristol Hippodrome in June.
The show has been adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book which tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone.
Christopher is autistic and when he finds himself stood next to a dog which has been speared with a garden fork he quickly comes under suspicion.
Christopher records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington the dog and the show follows the inner workings of his extraordinary brain which, while exceptional at maths, is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
The show weaves together impressive monologues and heart-warming interactions between characters with a clever set design and lighting to create a play which has now won the hearts of close to 400,000 people nationwide.
The play received seven Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design, and it was also given five Tony Awards on Broadway including Best Play.
National Theatre producer Kash Bennett said: “We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic reception from audiences when we toured The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time in 2014/15, and are delighted to take this beautiful and inventive show to new venues and make a return visits to others next year.”
The show will be at The Bristol Hippodrome on June 13-17. Performance times vary but full details and tickets, priced £19.40-39.90, are available via www.atgtickets.com/bristol or by calling 0117908448 717627.
