REVIEW: Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Review
Posted on 5 Jul 2017

Simon Stephens’ adaptation of Mark Haddon’s highly acclaimed novel takes its audience inside the mind of 15-year-old Christopher, a mathematical genius with Asperger syndrome who sets out to identify the killer of his neighbour’s dog.


Fearful of his father, Christopher heads off in search of his mother, a quest that takes him on a traumatic, challenging and at times comical adventure to London.

Featuring a talented ensemble playing a multitude of characters - Scott Reid is exceptional as Christopher - this captivating work uses extremely clever lighting, sound and projection to create an extraordinary visual.


Curious Incident is altogether a fantastic piece, with just the right blend of humour and drama to make it an outstanding evening of theatre. And just to top it all off, there’s a show-stealing cameo from a real-life puppy at the end of the play!

★★★★

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time runs at Birmingham Hippodrome until Saturday 8 July.
