The National Theatre hosts a special platform with the original creative team of its award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on Thursday 1 June at 5.15pm, following the matinee performance at the Gielgud Theatre in London. The discussion will be chaired by ITV’s Arts Editor, Nina Nannar. Tickets for the platform are £5.
Celebrating the final week of performances in the West End, this exclusive platform brings together the original Olivier and Tony Award®-winning creative team, including the director Marianne Elliott, playwright, Simon Stephens, Designer, Bunny Christie, Lighting Designer, Paule Constable, Video Designer, Finn Ross, Movement directors: Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett, Composer, Adrian Sutton and Sound Designer Ian Dickinson.
At the time of its West End closing on 3 June 2017, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will become the Gielgud Theatre’s longest running play in over 45 years. It will have played over 1,600 performances and been seen by over 1 million people in London, and almost 2 and a half million people world-wide. The original production opened at the NT’s Cottesloe Theatre in September 2012, and transferred to the Apollo Theatre in March 2013 before transferring to the Gielgud Theatre in July 2014. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time ran at the Barrymore Theatre in New York from September 2014 until September 2016, winning five Tony Awards® including Best Play and becoming the longest-running play on Broadway in over a decade.
The show tells the story of 15 year old Christopher Boone, who has an extraordinary brain; and is exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to solve a mystery of who killed his neighbour’s dog, but his detective work takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. The role of Christopher has been played by 18 actors since the show originally opened in London. Luke Treadaway, who originated the role at the National Theatre, received a 2013 Olivier Award for Best Actor and Alex Sharp won the Tony Award® for Best Actor on Broadway.
