The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

presented by London Community Players

Embark on an extraordinary journey of truth, bravery, and resilience…a powerful portrayal of family dynamics and love.

Teenaged boy with brown hair and a brown coat stands with a flashlight shining down at a big black poodle lying on the grass in the dark of night.
Christopher discovers Wellington.

Fifteen-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.

Join us as we delve into Christopher's extraordinary world of mystery, resilience, and self-discovery! Prepare to be captivated from the opening scene to the final curtain as you are swept away on an unforgettable journey through the mind of a prodigious detective.
