about this item
Simon Stephens's multi-award-winning stage adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Timetakes a close look at communication, loss and independence through the eyes of a troubled yet highly intelligent teenager. Christopher's investigation into who killed his neighbour's dog ultimately uncovers more than just the culprit. As his once-familiar world is torn apart, he faces the diversity of perspective and the struggle to survive when everything feels foreign.
