TONY AWARD-WINNING SHOW, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, COMES TO ADDISON
15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics 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. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he precisely records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world. Outcry Youth Theatre is honored to introduce you to Christopher, his teachers, his family, his neighbors and a number of other characters whose lives challenge us to see the world from a different point of view.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is based on the novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens, and directed by Outcry Theatre’s artistic director Becca Johnson-Spinos. This beautiful and important story won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play.
Although this is a youth production, Outcry Youth Theatre will be producing the script without edits. The script includes explicit language and for this reason, it is recommended for ages 13 and up. Outcry Theatre believes this to be a show with a meaningful message appropriate for most teens. If parents have further questions about the content, the theatre encourages them to email the contact address on outcrytheatre.com.
