A murder mystery like none other…

Based on the acclaimed best-selling novel by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was a smash-hit live broadcast in 2012. Now, it arrives on the Hong Kong big screen by popular demand.

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play, and hailed by The Times as “a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle”, 15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain – yet, while he excels at maths, he’s ill-equipped to cope with and interpret everyday life.

When Christopher falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Playing now in London’s West End, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time stars stalwarts of British TV, including Luke Treadaway(Attack the Block), Una Stubbs (Sherlock), Nicola Walker (Spooks) and Niamh Cusack (Heartbeat). Directed by Marianne Elliott, one of the original co-directors of the global hit War Horse, this magical, heartwarming production is one for all the family.
