The National Theatre's extraordinary production of Simon Stephen’s play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will return to London's West End for a run at the Piccadilly Theatre

The play has delighted audiences all across the UK and the world ever since its premiere in 2012.  Curious originally opened at the National’s Cottesloe Theatre (now known as the Dorfman Theatre) on the South Bank, but with demand for tickets so high, the production transferred to the West End, where it went on to win seven Olivier Awards, including the award for best new play.

Based on Mark Haddon's original 2003 book and adapted for the stage by Simon Stephens, it was directed by Marianne Elliott with innovative stage design by Bunny Christie, lighting by Paule Constable, video design by Finn Ross and movement by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly.

Curious Incident… tells the story of 15-year-old Christopher Boone, who attempts to solve the mystery of who murdered his neighbour Mrs Shears. As he searches for clues, we come to learn of Christopher’s extraordinary mind, his talent for maths, and a journey that takes him far out of his comfort zone.

The play proved so popular, praised especially for the care with which it tells the story of a boy with autism, it is taught as part of the GCSE English Literature curriculum in British schools, and is a staple in the history of modern British theatre. In 2018, rather than ask schools and parents to pay for tickets for a trip, the National Theatre produced a version of the play to tour around secondary schools in the UK.

Having become one of the West End's most popular plays, the production transferred to Broadway where it opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on 5 October 2014. It went on to win the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. Tickets for the production sold well on Broadway, and Curious Incident ran in New York for 800 performances, closing on 4th September 2016.
