The National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning production returns to Leeds on their 10th anniversary tour.
From Tuesday 12 April – Saturday 16 April 2022, the Leeds Grand Theatre will tell the electric and life-affirming story of Christopher, a 15 year old boy with an extraordinary brain who goes on an even more extraordinary journey.
Since 2012, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been seen by more than five million people worldwide, including two UK tours, two West End runs, a Broadway transfer, an adapted schools tour which has visited more than 100 schools around the UK, a National Theatre Live cinema broadcast, and tours to the Netherlands, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Australia and 30 cities across the USA.
The play tells the story of Christopher John Francis Boone. He stands besides Mrs Shears’ dead dog, which 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 killed Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at maths, while everyday life presents some barriers. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road; he detests being touched and distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.
Director Marianne Elliott’s smash-hit production has been named ‘life-affirming and unmissable, a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’ by The Times. The show features dynamic and innovative movement by world renowned theatre company Frantic Assembly which will leave you captivated and enthralled throughout.
