THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME
After a sell-out run at the Cottesloe, the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time continues to be a huge success and received more fantastic reviews after its opening night at the Apollo Theatre earlier this week. It also received the Whatsonstage award for Best New Play 2013 and won the Theatre Prize at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2013. We are extremely excited for all involved especially video designer Finn Ross.
The production has extended its booking until 4th January 2014, so be sure to catch it while you can.
“…brilliant national theatre production” Michael Coveney, Whatsonstage.com ****
“A hugely entertaining meditation on the nature of truth and how we present ourselves to each other.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian ****
“…The show manages to be theatrical while remaining entirely true to the spirit of the book… The play is staged in versatile black box with clever use of projections” Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph ****
“Marianne Elliott’s production (…) felt dazzlingly inventive (…) makes a freshly powerful impression. Simon Stephens has done an expert job of translating Haddon’s writing into absorbing theatre… I don’t think there’s a better performance right now on the London stage.” Henry Hitchings, The Evening Standard *****
“…The staging gets faster, funnier and riskier to match, culminating in a second act that is a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle, a theatrical rush equal to anything on the London stage…there’s no mystery at all to why this rich and dazzling play has moved to the West End.” Dominic Maxwell, The Times ****
