The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time

15 Dec 2016

The National Theatre has announced the final extension of the West End run of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. After nearly five years in London, the record-breaking production will have its final performance at the Gielgud Theatre on Saturday 3 June 2017. The show adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling book by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliot will continue its life with a UK and Ireland tour beginning in January 2017 and a North American tour continuing until September 2017.

National Theatre Executive Director, Lisa Burger said: ‘Audiences in London and across the country have embraced Marianne Elliott’s ground-breaking production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Our first tour of Curious Incident was seen by over 400,000 people, and we are delighted to be embarking on a second national tour, bringing the production to new audiences across the country. This 35 week tour of the UK and Ireland will begin in January 2017, and just this week, we welcomed the new company for their first day of rehearsals.’

Producer Kash Bennett added: ‘We are so proud of the London production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the incredible casts and crews who have brought the show to life night after night over the past five years.  As we enter the final six months in London, we also look forward to continuing the show’s extraordinary journey throughout the UK, Ireland, North America and beyond.’

By the time of its final bow in the West End, Curious Incident will have played over 1,600 performances and been seen by over 1 million people in London since it first played at the NT’s Cottesloe Theatre in September 2012 and then transferred to the West End in March 2017.  During these glorious years, it received seven Olivier Awards, including  Best New Play, Best Director, Best Design, Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design – more Oliviers than any other single play in the history of the West End.
