The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time 

Pollak Theatre - 7 PM

Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens. ‘A phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’ (The Times) ‘Dazzlingly inventive’ (Evening Standard) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time returns to selected international cinemas in 2018. Captured live from the National Theatre in London, this critically acclaimed production directed by Marianne Elliot (Angels in America, War Horse) has astonished audiences around the world and has received seven Olivier and five Tony Awards®. Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at math while 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. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. Production photography by Manuel Harlan

The Book of Ice is one aspect of this ongoing project.
