Stratford Playhouse Presents 'The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night-Time'
The award-winning Stratford Playhouse will be presenting its newest smash performance of “THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME”, running Oct. 22-30 under the direction of its artistic director, David Clayton.
Originally premiering in London and winner of seven Olivier Awards including “Best New Play,” Stratford Playhouse brings its own award-winning production style to “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.” Based on the bestselling novel by Mark Haddon, the play is told through the eyes of Christopher Boone, an autistic teen who is also a mathematical genius, when he takes on the role of detective (the title and Boone’s inspiration are taken from the famous tales of Sherlock Holmes) after a mysterious incident happens to his neighbor’s dog.
Christopher makes it his mission to solve the mystery, as the story explores his relationship with his parents and his mentor at school. The story unfolds as somewhat of a "play-within-a-play" as his teacher narrates the boy’s journey by reading from Boone’s own writings.
