TONY Awards 2015: Best actor Alex Sharp, best director Marianne Elliott and best play

The award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NightTime has resumed its West End run at the Gielgud Theatre this summer. It had been playing at the Apollo Theatre until damage was caused when the roof collapsed.

Adapted from Mark Haddon’s 2003 best-selling book, playwright Simon Stephens transfers all the mystery of the novel to the stage. The play follows a 15 year-old maths genius who tries to unravel the mystery of his neighbour’s murdered dog, that was found speared by a garden fork.

Against his father’s orders, and in spite of his personal limitations, Christopher sets out on a quest to discover the real truth behind the murder. Unfortunately the teen unearths more than he bargained for and eventually the secrets of his own life unravel before his very eyes.

The play is both a murder mystery and a tale of personal discovery for somebody on the edges of society.

The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is directed by Marianne Elliott. The production won 7 Olivier Awards including Best Play in 2013.
