National Theatre’s The Curious Incident transfers to the West End

Date Posted: 07/11/2012

The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will transfer to the West End’s Apollo Theatre from 1st March.

Adapted from Mark Haddon’s multi-award-winning novel and directed by Marianne Elliott, the production is currently booking until 25th May.


Christopher, 15 years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’s dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. 

He records each fact in a book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while 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. 

But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Original cast members recreate NT roles

Luke Treadaway will recreate his performance as Christopher Boone.

He will be joined by original cast members Matthew Barker, Niamh Cusack, Sophie Duval, Rhiannon Harper-Rafferty, Nick Sidi and Howard Ward.
