ABOUT THE SHOW
Embark on an extraordinary journey of truth, bravery, and resilience…a powerful portrayal of family dynamics and love.
15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at mathematics but 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.
Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbour’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
Adapted from the beloved novel by Mark Haddon and brought to life under the direction of London's own John Gerry, this deeply moving exploration of human connection is a must-see for all theatre enthusiasts and curious minds alike.
"Immerse yourself in the breathtaking blend of intellect, vulnerability, and resilience."
