Information

The National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award® -winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to Birmingham Hippodrome in March for one week only.

Director Marianne Elliott’s ‘extraordinary and unmissable’ (Time) smash hit production brings Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel to thrilling life on stage.

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at maths, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, it takes him on a journey that upturns his world.
