About The Show

Final West End performance - 3rd June 2017

Age recommendation: 11+

There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show. Please contact the Box Office on 0844 482 5130 should you wish to have more information (calls cost 7 pence per minute plus your phone company's access charge).

Based on the award-winning novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott.

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 maths 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.
