Advisory: Recommended for 11 years and above. There is some strong language in this production, as there is in the novel. This occurs at the very beginning of the show and infrequently at other points during the show.

There will be a Q&A session with the director and cast after the 3 Apr 2018, Tue, 8pm show.

*Large school groups will be expected at the 4 Apr, Wed, 3pm weekday matinee performance.

**Anyone can attend a Relaxed Performance. The performance is designed for anyone who will benefit from a more ‘relaxed’ theatre environment such as people on the autism spectrum, those with sensory and communication difficulties or a learning disability. Sound and lighting cues are modified to be less startling. Leaving the auditorium to take a break is fine and there is a designated Quiet Area available. There is an easy-going attitude to noise and movement, doors remain open and lights are dimmed staying on throughout the show. Preshow resources (Visual Story) are available to help you prepare for your visit. There will be a Q&A session with the cast after the performance.

“A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” Evening Standard


“It's a story about difference, about being an outsider, about seeing the world in a surprising and revealing way.”
Mark Haddon

In Singapore for the first time, the National Theatre stages its acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the winner of five Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play, Best Director and Best Design. Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs this “triumphant” (Sunday Telegraph) adaptation by two-time Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens who brings Mark Haddon’s internationally best-selling novel to life on stage.

Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has an extraordinary brain, is exceptional at math, 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. When Christopher falls under suspicion for killing his neighbour’s dog, his detective work to identify the true culprit takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Hailed as “a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle” by The Times, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a theatrical experience not to be missed.

Together with Kim Pearce, Resident Director of Curious, join us for a series of workshops that aim to deepen your knowledge and appreciation of Simon Stephen’s award-winning play.
